Rue Vincent-Massey is located in the Saint-Sauveur (Cité-Limoilou) district of Quebec City, north of Boulevard Charest and east of Avenue Saint-Sacrement, near the military complex in Saint-Malo industrial park.

This street in Saint-Malo industrial park is named in honour of the Right Honorable Vincent Massey (1887-1967), the 18th Governor of General of Canada. He was the first Canadian appointed to the post, and from that day the Governor General has always been a Canadian citizen.
