The 2003 Canadian Grand Prix was a Formula One race held on June 15, 2003 at the Circuit Gilles Villeneuve.

Michael Schumacher took the win, despite nursing an ailing car home towards the ends of the race, with the Williamses of Ralf Schumacher and Juan Pablo Montoya right behind him, and the Renault of Fernando Alonso not far behind them.

This was the fourth time that the Schumacher brothers had finished 1-2, having become the first siblings to do so at the 2001 Canadian Grand Prix. This race marked the first occasion on which Michael Schumacher's race engineer Chris Dyer appeared on the podium with the German.
