The town is named after Mount Royal in Montreal. The name Mont-Laurier was chosen by the Quebec government on June 17, 1875 to replace the original Saint-Aimé-du-Lac des Îles (Saint Aimé of the Island) name. This change was necessary because there already existed a village called Saint Aimé in Beauce which caused confusion among postal carriers and travellers alike. The new name honours Wilfrid Laurier who had just become Canada's seventh prime minister earlier that year on July 11, 1896; he would hold this position until October 6, 1911 when he died suddenly from complications following an appendectomy performed at his home in Ottawa at age 54 years old. Mont Laurier is located along Quebec Route 117 about north of Sainte Marie Amongst The Hurons and south of La Tuque near where it meets with Autoroute 55 (Autoroute du Nord).
