Rue Stanley is a residential street in Sainte-Foy on the south side of Chemin Saint-Louis between Rue de Valmont and Rue de Sieur d’Argenteuil, just behind Saint Louis de France School.

Rue Stanley is named in honour of Sir Henry Morton Stanley (1841-1904) who was born John Rowlands. He was famous for his exploration of central Africa and his search for missionary and explorer David Livingstone.
