Boucherville is a city in the Montérégie region in Quebec, Canada. It is a suburb of Montreal on the South shore of the Saint Lawrence River.
Boucherville is part of both the urban agglomeration of Longueuil and Montreal Metropolitan Community regional government.
Boucherville was originally founded as a seigneurial parish in 1667 by Pierre Boucher, for whom the city was later named. Pierre Boucher came from Mortagne-au-Perche, France. After having lived in Quebec City and Trois-Rivières, Boucher moved to the Percées Islands by the shores of Saint Lawrence River, where he founded Boucherville.
The first church of the village of Boucherville was built in 1670. This church, made of wood, was eventually replaced in 1712 by a building made of brick, which was in turn replaced by the current Sainte-Famille Church in 1801.
Several families left Boucherville in the 18th century to found the communities of Sainte-Julie and Saint-Bruno-de-Montarville.
