Sainte-Famille is a parish municipality in the L'Île-d'Orléans Regional County Municipality, Quebec, Canada, part of the administrative region of Capitale-Nationale. It is situated along the western shores of Orléans Island.

Founded in 1661, Sainte-Famille is the oldest settlement on the île d'Orléans and has one of the most important concentrations of houses of the old French regime.

History[edit]

In 1661, the first parish on Orleans Island was formed, known until 1679 as Paroisse de l'Île. The parish municipality was first established in 1845 as La Sainte-Famille, abolished in 1847, and reestablished in 1855. It is unclear when the article disappeared.[1]
