The Rivière des Prairies is a delta channel of the Ottawa River in southwestern Quebec, Canada. The indigenous inhabitants of what's now known as the Island of Montreal called it Skowanoti, meaning "River behind the island".
Flowing west to east, the Rivière des Prairies bisects the Hochelaga Archipelago and originates in the Lake of Two Mountains. It flows on either side of Île Bizard , it then divides the Island of Montreal to the south from Île Jésus to the north, after which it flows into the St. Lawrence River at the eastern tip of the Island of Montreal.
