The Minister of the Economic Development Agency of Canada for the Regions of Quebec (French: Ministre de l'Agence de développement économique du Canada pour les régions du Québec) is the member of the Cabinet of Canada who also serves as the chief executive of the Economic Development Agency of Canada for the Regions of Quebec.

Prior to 2004, the portfolio was considered an add-on responsibility for a full Cabinet minister with other responsibilities, usually the Industry Minister. It was consequently termed the Minister responsible for the Economic Development Agency of Canada for the Regions of Quebec.

The current minister is Denis Lebel.

Related regional development posts include Minister for the Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency and Minister of Western Economic Diversification.
