Sainte-Anne-de-la-Pérade is a municipality in the Les Chenaux Regional County Municipality, in the Mauricie region of the province of Quebec in Canada. The town is located near the mouth of the Sainte-Anne River along the Chemin du Roy, a historic segment of Quebec Route 138 that stretches from near Montreal to Quebec City. It is the world capital of Tommy Cod fishing. During Tommy Cod season, generally from late December to mid-February, thousands of tourists come to Sainte-Anne for ice fishing and a small fishing village is built on the frozen waters of the Sainte-Anne River that bisects the town. The centerpiece of the town is the Sainte-Anne-de-la-Pérade Church, a Catholic church near the banks of the Sainte-Anne River, modelled after the Notre-Dame Basilica in Montreal.
