L'Isle-Verte is a small municipality located along the south shore of the Saint Lawrence River, in the Rivière-du-Loup Regional County Municipality of the Bas-Saint-Laurent region, Quebec, Canada. The name of the village refers to Île Verte (French for "Green Island"), a nearby island that is not within its municipal boundaries. Village and island are joined by a seasonal ferry.

It is known for its lamb, fed in a salted marsh, a luxury product in Quebec. Its marshes along the Saint Lawrence River are a protected bird sanctuary part of the Baie de l’Isle-Verte Ramsar wetland.

On January 23, 2014, a major fire destroyed the Résidence du Havre, a home for the elderly, with 16 known dead and another 16 missing.
