History: The Diocèse de Valleyfield was erected, 1892, from portions of the Archdiocese of Montréal for the region southwest of that city, which extends upriver on the St. Lawrence to the U.S. border and New York State. The Valleyfield Diocese and its predecessors administered a Catholic mission serving Native Americans that straddles the United States-Canadian border.

1752-2000s (Valleyfield, 1892-1970s; transferred to Ogdensburg, New York) Jesuits (French-Canadian Province) administered St. Regis Mission (Mohawk), St. Regis [Akwesasne], St. Regis Reservation
