Rue de l’Abénaquise is a tree-lined residential street in the Des Châtels borough of Quebec City, near the intersection of Avenue de l’Auvergne and Boulevard Henri-IV.

This street in the Des Châtels borough of Quebec City is named in honour of the French frigate Abénaquise, which was itself named after the Abenaki people, the original First Nations inhabitants of a region which included the St. Lawrence River valley, the Maritime provinces and New England.
