Sainte-Rose is a district in Laval, Quebec. It was incorporated as a village in 1850, and was a separate town until the municipal mergers on August 6, 1965 which amalgamated all the municipalities on Île Jésus into a single City of Laval.

Ste-Rose is best known for the parish church, erected 1740, which contains a Casavant Frères organ and hosts numerous concerts every year, and for "Vieux Ste-Rose", a charming area known for its attractive old houses and fine restaurants. Other districts that are also part of Sainte-Rose are Champenois (located between Boulevard Curé-Labelle and Autoroute 15, to the west of "Vieux Ste-Rose") and Champfleury, also known as Des Oiseaux (after the name of the district's main thoroughfare), to the south, near the border with Chomedey.

Transportation

It is served by city bus lines operated by the Société de transport de Laval and by commuter trains of the Saint-Jerome line of the Réseau de transport métropolitain (RTM). The Sainte-Rose station on that line is located just east of "Vieux Ste-Rose", on the border with Auteuil.
