The 1984 Canadian Grand Prix was a Formula One motor race held at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve on June 17, 1984. It was the seventh round of the 1984 Formula One season.

Brabham's defending World Champion Nelson Piquet scored his first win and indeed his first points for the season. It was the 4th "Grand Slam' of his Formula One career also scoring his 3rd pole position and 2nd fastest lap of the season. Piquet's win over the McLaren-TAGs of Niki Lauda and Alain Prost proved that when the Brabham's BMW turbo engine held together the car had the speed to beat the McLarens.

Lauda, who started 8th, finished 2nd to boost his championship hopes while Prost had to deal with a minor misfire in his TAG engine for the race but still finished 3rd. Rounding out the points were the Lotus-Renaults of Elio de Angelis and Nigel Mansell in 4th and 6th respectively, the pair separated by the Ferrari of 1983 race winner René Arnoux who finished 5th.
