Jean-Jacques Simard (born 1945) is a Québécois professor and sociologist.

He has been professor of sociology at Université Laval since 1976.

He began the first project into modern autonomous Inuit government in Canada. A critic of hydroelectric development in Baie-James, he left public function to become a counselor for Inuit dissidents in the famous James Bay and Northern Quebec Agreement.

The Commission Bélanger-Campeau called him to give evidence in the aboriginal question.

From 1988–1989, he edited Recherches sociographiques, a journal published by the Département de sociologie, Faculté des sciences sociales of Université Laval, Quebec City.
