Marieville is a city in the Canadian province of Quebec. It is located within the Rouville Regional County Municipality in the Montérégie region about 30 kilometers east of Montreal. The population as of the Canada 2011 Census was 10,094.

History[edit]

In 1708, Sieur Claude de Ramezey obtained a parcel of land which was named the Monnoir manor. Population increased starting at around 1740. It became a parish in 1832 and officially an incorporated municipality in 1858 and later an incorporated city in 1905. In 2000, the parish of Sainte-Marie-de-Monnoir, which previously demerged from Marieville in 1855 was re-merged. Its main economic activity today is still agriculture.[5]

Marieville is accessible via Quebec Autoroute 10, which runs from Montreal to Sherbrooke via Granby and Magog. Quebec Route 112 is a route that runs parallel to A-10 but through the municipality but continues north of Sherbrooke toward Thetford Mines. Quebec Route 227 is the secondary road that connects A-10 to the center of Marieville and runs south towards Champlain Lake and north towards Quebec Autoroute 20 near Sainte-Madeleine.
