The Sainte-Anne River is a tributary of the Saint Lawrence River in the province of Quebec, Canada.

It is well known for ice fishing, with the primary catch being Tomcod, (poulamon in French), during the winter at Ste-Anne-de-la-Pérade. A small village builds up from the end of December to mid-February.

It is also regionally known for flooding, especially in St-Raymond, and sometimes in St-Casimir.

The river has its source in the Reserve des Laurentides and flows through St-Raymond, St-Casimir and Ste-Anne-de-la-Pérade to empty into the north shore of the Saint Lawrence.
