Location of Lauzon in Quebec

Lauzon is a former city in southern Quebec, Canada, located on the St. Lawrence River northeast of Lévis. Founded in 1910, Lauzon had a population of about 14,500 when it merged with Lévis in 1989. The then-amalgamated city had the name of Lévis-Lauzon for about one year in 1991, before merging again and changing its name for good to Lévis.

One of Lauzon's former largest employers was a shipyard operated by Davie Shipbuilding. Davie's Champlain dry dock is currently the largest in Canada.
