The Whitehall Accord (French: Traité de Whitehall) signed on 19 February 1794 was an agreement between counter-revolutionary colonists from the French possessions of Saint-Domingue, Martinique and Guadeloupe with the British Empire, whereby they gained the protection of the British armed forces in exchange for some of the financial proceeds from the colony.

It was signed by Henry Dundas for the British, and Pierre Victor (San Domingue), Ignace-Joseph-Philippe de Perpignan and Louis de Curt (Guadeloupe) and Louis-François Dubuc (Martinique).
