The Jacques Cartier Stakes is a Canadian Thoroughbred horse race run annually since 1954 at Woodbine Racetrack in Toronto, Ontario. Run in mid April, the sprint race is open to horses aged four and older and is run over a distance of six furlongs on Polytrack synthetic dirt.

Inaugurated in 1954 at the now defunct Greenwood Raceway in Toronto, the Jacques Cartier Stakes is named in honour of the French explorer, Jacques Cartier. It was raced at Woodbine Racetrack from 1956 through 1967 after which it was hosted by Fort Erie Racetrack through 1975. In 1976 the race returned to Greenwood Raceway where it remained through 1993. It returned to its prest location at Woodbine Racetrack in 1994.

The race was run in two divisions in 1984.
