Saint-Sulpice, Québec

The municipality of the parish of Saint-Sulpice is located east of Montreal. It is part of the administrative region of Lanaudière and the regional municipality of the county of Assomption.

The municipality stretches over more than 37 square kilometers. Located only about twenty minutes from the Island of Montreal, Saint-Sulpice is also part of the Metropolitan Community of Montreal.

This territory has been frequented by the Indians for almost 5000 years. At the time of New France, it was here that the oldest seigniories were granted in the middle of the 17th century. It is well known that the territory of the island of Montreal belonged to the Sulpicians and that is why the name of Saint-Sulpice was chosen to designate these places.
