Sainte-Adèle, Quebec is part of the Les Pays-d'en-Haut Regional County Municipality. It lies on the Trans-Canada Highway about 70 km north-west of Montreal. Its tourism-based economy centres on its skiing and hotel industry.

In 1842 Augustin-Norbert Morin purchased land in the area that would become Sainte-Adèle for 8¢ per arpent, which colonists arriving soon after then purchased from him for $8 CAD per arpent. The town of Sainte-Adèle was founded in 1855. A rail line was constructed and the first Canadian Pacific Railway train arrived in the town in 1891. The railway was used primarily to transport wood, cattle, dairy products, and mail.

The first "ski resort", Chalet Cochand, was built in 1914, followed by Le Alpine Inn in 1924. More hotels and expansions of local ski slopes followed. Sainte-Adèle's local newspaper, Le Journal des Pays d'en Haut, was established in 1967. Supporting the thriving hotel and resort business of the time, the École Hôtelières des Laurentides (Hotel School of the Laurentians) opened in 1983. In 1991 the railway was decommissioned and converted to a park for cyclists and skiers.
