Historically named Île Bonaventure, by 1723 it had come to be named Île Bizard, after Jacques Bizard, to whom it was conceded as a fief (seigneurie) in 1678. See Seigneurial system of New France. The island was also used by the settlers of New France, as a way to get timber into Montreal from the river, see Timber rafting.
