The municipality is named after the old Mille-Isles Seigneury, which originally straddled the Mille Îles River (the seigneury uses the old spelling, whereas the river uses the modern word that substitutes a circumflex for the "s"). In 1683, the seigneury was granted to Michel-Sidrac Dugué de Boisbriand (circa 1638-1688), who was governor of Montreal in 1670. In 1714, it was inherited by Charles-Gaspard Piot de Langloiserie (circa 1655-1715) and Jean Petit (1663-1720), husbands of Marie-Thérèse Dugué and Charlotte Dugué respectively, daughters of the first lord. In 1752, additional land in the extreme north-west of the Mille-Isles Seigneury was given to Eustache Lambert Dumont and it is within this part that the municipality is located.
The first settlers were from Ireland and arrived around 1850. The municipality was officially founded in 1855, following separation from the parish of Saint-Jérôme.
