Georges Villeneuve (born 20 February 1922 at Saint-Prime, Quebec) was a Liberal party member of the Canadian House of Commons.

After school studies in Saint-Prime, then at the seminaries in Chicoutimi and Nicolet, Villeneuve began law studies in 1946 at Université Laval in Quebec City. After his graduation in 1949, he was granted status as a notary and opened a practice in Mistassini that August.

Villeneuve was first elected at the Roberval riding in the 1953 general election then re-elected for one more term in 1957. He was defeated in the 1958 election by Jean-Noël Tremblay of the Progressive Conservative party. Villeneuve made two further unsuccessful attempts to win back Roberval in 1962 and 1965.

From 1961 to 1968, Villeneuve was mayor of Mistassini.[1] He continued his notary practice until his retirement in 1985.[1]
