In 2016, under the terms of the Cultural Heritage Act, the Government of Quebec designated Captain Joseph-Elzéar Bernier a historical figure.

Rue du Capitaine-Bernier is named in honour of Captain Joseph-Elzéar Bernier (1852-1934), who was born in the village of L’Islet-sur-Mer, 100 km north-east of Quebec City. His father and grandfather were mariners, and he himself became a mariner and explorer of the Canadian North.
