Rue de Stadaconé is an extension of Rue Bourdages located near the St. Charles River, along the eastern side of the Laurentian Boulevard. Many students of the nearby Centre Louis-Jolliet adult education facility park here in the daytime.

Rue de Stadaconé (Stadacona in English) was named after the 16th-century Iroquois village on the shore of the St. Charles River in the Limoilou district of present Quebec City.
