Arundel is a township municipality in Quebec, Canada, located 18 kilometres (11 mi) south of Mont Tremblant.

Arundel was settled by Scottish and Irish immigrants in the mid-19th century who established subsistence farming operations and worked the forests in winter.

Today most of the land is reserved for agricultural use despite strong growth in the region. Much of Arundel borders the Rouge River.
