Gilles Vigneault GOQ (French pronunciation: ​[ʒil viɲo]; born 27 October 1928) is a Québécois poet, publisher, singer-songwriter, and Quebec nationalist and sovereigntist.

Two of his songs are considered by many to be Quebec's unofficial anthems: "Mon pays" and "Gens du pays", and his line Mon pays ce n'est pas un pays, c'est l'hiver (My country is not a country, it is winter, from "Mon Pays") became a proverb in Quebec.

Vigneault is a Grand Officer of the National Order of Quebec, Knight of the Legion of Honour, and Officer of the Ordre des Arts et des Lettres.
