Rue des Anciens-Combattants (formerly Rue du Bel-Air) is a short street between Rue Julien-Green and Rue de la Visitation, in the residential district behind the CHUL hospital on Boulevard Laurier.

Rue des Anciens-Combattants, in the Sainte-Foy borough of Quebec City, is named in honour of veterans who served in the Canadian Armed Forces.

Many of the surrounding streets are named in honour of Canadians who took part in the two World Wars, many of them decorated war heroes. Rue des Anciens-Combattants is a reminder of their heroism.
