Uniprix is a Quebec pharmacy chain founded in 1977 and based in Saint-Leonard, Montreal. It operates under four brands: Uniprix, Unipharm, Clinique Santé and Uniclinique (inside clinics). Combining its four brands, Uniprix is the second-largest pharmacy chain in Quebec (after Jean Coutu) and is mutually exclusive with the Pharmasave chain in English Canada.

Uniprix logo used from the 1990s until 2012.

Most Uniprix products are branded as Option+.

The Uniprix name is also used for a Montreal tennis stadium (formerly DuMaurier Stadium) which the chain acquired the naming rights for.

Uniprix also was the name of a chain of popular stores in France, launced by the Nouvelles Galeries in 1928. It later was acquired by its competitor, Monoprix.
