Saint Antoine sur Richelieu is located on the majestic Richelieu River and was attached to the seigneury of Contrecoeur during the 17th century. A ferry transit point was established between southern Quebec and the Saint Laurent River but it is abandoned today.

However, the ferry operates on a short route between Saint-Antoine and the village of Saint-Denis. The river freezes in the winter, forming a ice-bridge for crossing.
