Dominique Bosshart (born October 7, 1977 in Morges, Vaud, Switzerland) is a Canadian taekwondo athlete. She was Canada's only taekwondo competitor during the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney, where she won a bronze medal in the heavyweight division (+ 67 kg). She competed in the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens but did not medal.

Bosshart began studying taekwondo at age 13, at the urging of her brother. At age 15, she moved from living with her parents in Landmark, Manitoba to living on her own in Winnipeg in order to train with Master Joo Kang at Kang's Taekwondo Academy.

Her favourite move is a 360-degree kick to opponent's head.
