Pascal Bérubé (born February 16, 1975 in Matane, Quebec) is a Quebec politician and television host. He is the current Member of National Assembly of Quebec for the riding of Matane-Matapédia (formerly Matane) and represents the Parti Québécois.

Berubé studied at Université du Québec à Rimouski and obtained a bachelor's degree in education sciences. He later worked as a coordinator for Matane and La Haute-Gaspesie regional county municipalities and a political aide for the Minister of Education and the Minister of Regions. He was also a television host and researcher at Cogeco in Matane, and the former vice-president of the Fédération étudiante universitaire du Québec.

Bérubé was a candidate for Matane in the 2003 elections but was defeated by the Liberal Candidate Nancy Charest. In 2007, he defeated Charest by just over 200 votes. He was named the PQ's critic in communitarian action but later promoted to the portfolio of financial aid for studies.

He was re-elected in 2012 and 2014.

He was nominated Opposition House Leader by Jean-François Lisée in October 2016.
