Vincent Bigot (15 May 1649 in Bourges – 7 September 1720 in Paris) was a French Jesuit priest and a missionary in Canada.

Life history[edit]

Vincent Bigot, like his brother Jacques, was sent to the Algonkin mission at Sillery, Quebec upon his arrival in Canada in 1680.

Bigot was important to the Jesuit mission in Canada. By 1704 he was superior general of their missions in that jurisdiction. In 1713 he returned to France to become the procurator of Canadian missions. He held this position until his death.
