The Parti marxiste–léniniste du Québec (PMLQ, in English: Marxist-Leninist Party of Quebec) is a communist political party in Quebec, Canada. Its ideology is Marxism-Leninism. The PMLQ is the Quebec branch of the Communist Party of Canada (Marxist–Leninist). It has run candidates in Quebec general elections in 1973, 1981 and since 1989 under various names: Parti communiste du Québec (marxiste-léniniste), Parti marxiste-léniniste (Québec) and Parti marxiste-léniniste du Québec.

In 2002, three leftist political parties (Rassemblement pour l'alternative progressiste, Parti de la démocratie socialiste and Parti communiste du Québec) merged to form the Union des forces progressistes. However, the Parti marxiste–léniniste du Québec refused to join the UFP, and ran candidates in the 2003, 2007, 2008 and 2012 Quebec elections.

The leader of the PMLQ is Pierre Chénier.
