Janvier Grondin (born June 16, 1947 in Saint-Jules, Quebec) is a former politician in the province of Quebec, Canada. He represented the Beauce-Nord district at the National Assembly of Quebec until 2012 as a member of the Coalition Avenir Quebec. He previously represented the riding as a member of the now defunct Action démocratique du Québec (ADQ), before the ADQ merged with the CAQ in January 2012.
Prior to being elected, he served as mayor of Saint-Jules (Beauce) from 1993 to 2003. He was also an administrator for the Union des producteurs agricoles (UPA), the vice-president of Régie Intermunicipale Beauce, the president of the CLSC Beauce-Centre and an administrator for the Saint-Jules Chamber of Commerce
In 2006, Grondin claimed that an influential Liberal supporter tried to convince him not to run in the 2007 election in order to favour the election of Liberal candidate Claude Drouin. Grondin claims that a well paid job in the public service, which he declined, was offered to him. Liberal leader and Premier of Quebec Jean Charest denied the accusation and dared Grondin to tell the public who made the offer. Grondin said that if Charest called him personally, he would be glad to do so, but Charest refused.
