Saint-Émile-de-Suffolk is a municipality in the Outaouais region of Quebec, Canada, part of the Papineau Regional County Municipality. Until 1994 it was known as United Township Municipality of Suffolk-et-Addington.
The area is characterized by rugged terrain of the Laurentian Mountains, marked here and there by mountains that rise more than 400 meters (1,300 ft) above sea level. Its principal streams are the Little Rouge River and the Suffolk Creek that feeds it, the first being a tributary of the Petite-Nation River.
Suffolk Township (named after the county in England) was already on the Gale and Duberger map of 1795, but not officially established until 1874. Municipally it was part of the United Township Municipality of Hartwell-et-Suffolk until 1880 when the municipality separated and the Township Municipality of Suffolk was formed, taking effect on January 1, 1881.
Piece by piece, portions of the united township were detached to form new municipalities: Vinoy in 1920 (which became part of Chénéville in 1996), Lac-des-Plages in 1950, and finally Namur in 1964.
In 1994, the name and status were changed to that of Municipality of Saint-Émile-de-Suffolk.
