Originally, the community was founded as a French religious mission. In the French language, "Sault" translates to either "rapids" or "jump." Thus, the entire translation is "Saint Mary's Rapids or Jump Saint Mary's." The word Sault is pronounced in French as "so," and Anglophone inhabitants enunciate it as "soo." Individuals who reside in the region are referred to as "Saultites."

Marie Canal is reserved for smaller recreational crafts and tour boats.
