Shubenacadie Grand Lake is a large Canadian lake straddling the Halifax Regional Municipality and Hants county on mainland Nova Scotia.

It drains into the Shubenacadie River at its northeastern outlet.

The lake is the seventh and largest lake in the Shubenacadie Canal system and is located between Lock 5 and 6.

Shubenacadie Grand Lake hosts two provincial parks, Laurie Provincial Park and Oakfield Provincial Park, both on its eastern shore.
