Saint-Côme–Linière is a municipality in the Beauce-Sartigan Regional County Municipality in the Chaudière-Appalaches region of Quebec, Canada. The official spelling given by the Commission de toponymie uses an en dash after "Saint-Côme",[1][2] but the town's own website uses a second hyphen: Saint-Côme-Linière.[4] The population is 3,282 as of 2009.

Saint-Côme–Linière was constituted by the amalgamation of the parish municipality of Saint-Côme-de-Kennebec and the village of Linière on August 17, 1994. Saint-Côme was named after Arabian-born Christian martyr Saint Cosmas and Linière received its name from the Lord who was first granted the land and cultivated fields of flax ("Lin" in French).[1]
