Manuel Osborne-Paradis (born February 8, 1984) is a World Cup alpine ski racer from Canada.

Born in North Vancouver, British Columbia, Osborne-Paradis grew up racing for the Whistler Mountain Ski Club. His first World Cup podium came in November 2006 at the Bombardier Winterstart men's downhill in Lake Louise, Alberta, Canada. His first victory was at the downhill of Kvitfjell in March 2009.

In April 2008, he joined forces with teammate Mike Janyk to provide a four day training camp free of charge to underprivileged Canadian racers from around British Columbia. The camp, known locally as the "Cowboys Camp", took place on Whistler Mountain.

On January 29, 2011, Osborne-Paradis crashed badly at the downhill race in Chamonix, France, and was airlifted by helicopter and treated for a broken leg and torn knee ligament. He missed the 2011 World Championships and the remainder of the 2011 season, as well as the 2012 season.
