Stanstead is a town in the Memphrémagog Regional County Municipality in the Estrie region of Quebec, located on the Canada-United States border across from Derby Line, Vermont.

The Town of Stanstead was created in 1995 by the merger of the former towns of Stanstead Plain, Rock Island and Beebe (formerly Beebe Plain). It is not to be confused with the township of Stanstead, which is nearby although not directly adjacent (the municipality of Ogden lies in between). Not only is Stanstead home to the Haskell Free Library and Opera House — the only heritage building deliberately constructed straddling the border between both countries, it also features Canusa Street, which is the only street in the world where the country border corresponds to the middle line marker, effectively making across the street neighbors residents of two different countries.
