Le Canadien-  a French language newspaper published in Lower Canada from November 22, 1806.

The newspaper was founded in Quebec City by lawyer Pierre-Stanislas Bédard and associates François Blanchet, Jean-Antoine Panet, Jean-Thomas Taschereau and Joseph Le Vasseur Borgia.

All were members of the Parliament of Lower Canada at the time. The newspaper quickly became the voice of the Parti canadien in their battle against the English party and the government of governor James Craig.
