Annette Saint-Pierre, CM (born 1925) is a Canadian educator, writer and publisher.


She was born in Saint-Germain-de-Grantham, Quebec and was educated at the Scolasticat Saint—Joseph in Saint-Hyacinthe and the University of Ottawa. Between 1950 and 1970, Saint-Pierre taught elementary and high school in Manitoba. In 1970, she became a professor of Canadian literature at Collège universitaire de Saint-Boniface and initiated the first university level course in Canadian literature in western Canada.

In 1978, Saint-Pierre was a founding member of the Centre d'études Franco-canadiennes de l'Ouest. In 1984, she was a director for the Regroupement des centres d'études au Canada. She was also a founding member of the first two Franco-Manitoban publishing houses, Éditions du Blé and Éditions des Plaines.

Saint-Pierre played a crucial role in preserving the birthplace of Gabrielle Roy, now a museum.

In 2004, she was named to the Order of Canada.
