Saint-Eustache is an off-island suburb of Montreal, in western Quebec, Canada, west of Montreal on the north shore of the Rivière des Mille-Îles.

The city was founded in 1770 and incorporated in 1835.[4] A significant battle of the Lower Canada Rebellion was fought here on December 14, 1837; the rebels were defeated and the town was burnt. The Battle was to be known as The Battle of Saint-Eustache.

The Autodrome Saint-Eustache hosts various stock-car racing, locals drag racing, and other race competitions.
