The Leader of the Opposition (French: Chef de l'Opposition) in Québec is the MNA in the National Assembly of Québec who leads the political party recognized as the Official Opposition. This status generally goes to the leader of the second largest party in the National Assembly.

Note that the leader of the Opposition is not always the leader of the political party with the second-largest number of seats, in cases where the leader of that party does not have a seat.

There was no Leader of the Opposition until March 1869, when the government's second budget was introduced.
