Dollard-Des Ormeaux–Roxboro is a former borough in the West Island area of Montreal, Quebec. It was composed of the former municipalities of Dollard-des-Ormeaux and Roxboro, and was formed on January 1, 2002.

On June 20, 2004, Dollard-Des Ormeaux voted to return to being an independent municipality, effective January 1, 2006. Roxboro elected to stay part of Montreal, although this result is being challenged in court. It was incorporated into the new borough of Pierrefonds—Roxboro.
