The Circuit Gilles Villeneuve is a circuit located at Parc Jean-Drapeau on Île Notre-Dame, a man-made island in the St. Lawrence River that is part of the city of Montreal. The circuit was originally named the Île Notre-Dame Circuit but was renamed in honour of Canadian Formula One driver Gilles Villeneuve.

The circuit has featured in almost every Superleague season, missing only the 2001 season (where the season lasted only three rounds). The circuit also hosted the Masters Series in 2009.
