Chandler is a town in the Gaspésie–Îles-de-la-Madeleine region of Quebec, Canada. It is the second-most populous town on the Gaspé Peninsula after the Town of Gaspé. It was known as Pabos between June 27, 2001 and May 4, 2002.The city is the birthplace of NHL player Mathieu Garon, and Quebec politician Joseph-Léonard Duguay. Chandler's major industries include fishing, manufacturing pulp and paper products, and shipping from the large deep-water wharf.In addition to Chandler itself, the town's territory also includes the communities of Newport, Grand-Pabos-Ouest, Pabos, Pabos Mills, and Saint-François-de-Pabos.HistoryThe area was first settled in 1729, making it one of the oldest places on the Gaspé coast. It was known over time as Paboc, Pabo, Pabok, Pabeau, and Pas-bos. In 1815, the final spelling of Pabos was assigned in the Description topographique de la province du Bas Canada (Topographical Description of the Province of Lower Canada). The meaning of this name is uncertain, although there are various theories: from the Mi'kmaq word papôg (meaning "playful waters"); a Basque name; from the Spanish pavo; a place in France, home of the first seignoral lord; or from the French words pas beau (meaning "beautiful passage").
