Windsor is a short residential street in Sainte-Foy between Chemin des Quatre-Bourgeois and Avenue McCartney, from Rue du Niagara to Rue d’Ottawa.

Rue de Windsor is named in honour of Windsor, Ontario, the southernmost city in Canada. It is located on the south shore of the Detroit River, across the river from Detroit, Michigan, U.S.A., which is actually directly north of Windsor.
