The Secretary of State for Science, Research and Development is a former federal government position in Canada. It was not a full cabinet portfolio, but was instead affiliated with Industry Canada, overseen by the Minister of Industry. The ministers who held this position were, in effect, policy assistants to the Industry Minister.

The position was established by incoming Prime Minister Jean Chr├ętien in the aftermath of the 1993 federal election, and was discontinued when Paul Martin succeeded Chr├ętien in 2003.

On October 30, 2008, a similar portfolio was revived as the Minister of State (Science & Technology) by Prime Minister Stephen Harper.
