Havre-Saint-Pierre is a town situated on Pointe-aux-Esquimaux, which is on the Quebec north shore (Côte-Nord) of the Saint Lawrence River in Canada.  Located along Route 138 some 200 kilometres (120 miles) east of Sept-Îles, it is the largest town and seat of the Minganie RCM, and home to many government, municipal, and regional services.

Historically, the town´s first inhabitants came from the Magdalen Islands in the nineteenth century.  As a result, the people of the town speak a dialect much more closely related to Acadian French than to Quebec French.  Other important geological features near the town include the Romaine River to the north and west, les Chutes Manitou, on the Manitou River to the west, l'Île du Havre, less than a kilometre offshore from the town, and Anticosti Island, which on clear days can be seen to the south of the town.
