Cartierville Airport (IATA: YCV, ICAO: CYCV) was an airport in Saint-Laurent, Quebec, now a borough of Montreal. The airport was decommissioned and turned into the Bois-Franc neighbourhood. It was located next to Route 117 (now Boul. Marcel Laurin, formerly Laurentian Blvd.) and the terminal buildings were accessed via Boul. Henri-Bourassa (formerly Rue Bois Franc), near the present Bois-Franc Train Station on the Deux Montagnes Commuter Rail Line.

As the 10/28 runway's threshold was very close to Bois-Franc Boulevard (now Boul. Henri-Bourassa West), a traffic light was installed and automobile traffic was stopped by Air Traffic Control whenever a plane was about to take off from runway 28 or land on runway 10.

At one time, Canadair Plant One used the airfield to fly off completed CL-215, CL-415, Challenger bizjets and Canadair Regional Jets. The airport was closed to private and commercial passenger traffic in the 1980s when it became apparent that traffic from the nearby Dorval Airport was making it hazardous for chartered flights and flight schools to operate on the site. This left Bombardier as the sole user.
