Saint-Sauveur is a small town within the Les Pays-d'en-Haut Regional County Municipality, Quebec, Canada. It is in the administrative region of Laurentides in the Laurentian mountains about 45 minutes north of Montreal. On September 11, 2002 the city was created from the merger of Village de St-Sauveur-des-monts and Paroisse de St-Sauveur.

The current Director General is M. Jean Beaulieu. The City Clerk is M. Normand Patrice.

St-Sauveur is well known for its local ski areas, the biggest one of which is Mont Saint-Sauveur. The ski areas market themselves jointly under the name of "Valley of Saint-Sauveur". Its close proximity to Montreal, the snow-making capability, night-time skiing, and the après-ski establishments make St-Sauveur a popular destination for skiers.

The town is also the birthplace of Canadian musicians Kate and Anna McGarrigle.
