He married Louise Roberge on November 23, 1716 on l'Île-d'Orléans at Saint-Laurent. Louise was the daughter of Pierre Roberge and Marie LeFrançois.

Joachim moved his family to Boucherville in the early 1720's after their first two children were born. Boucherville is one of the oldest municipalities in Québec. Boucherville, was incorporated as a city in 1957, is now a borough of the new city of Longueuil.

Nicolas Audet was granted land on the southeast side of l'Île-d'Orléans At that time, it was in the parish of Sainte-Famille. In 1679, the parish of Ste-Famille was divided and their farm became part of the village of Saint-Jean.
