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 (with Piquet driving) 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.

Nelson Piquet after the race "climbed out of his car and collapsed on the ground" due to a badly burned right foot from the race. In the next race at Detroit, he had a special tray of ice for easing the blisters on his foot. Citation: CBS Wide World of Sports coverage of Detroit GP, at 51:42 into the race. Earlier in the coverage they show the tray of ice and make comment that it will be "the fastest refrigerated vehicle in the world".
