Pierre de Chauvin de Tonnetuit (died February 1603) was a French naval and military captain and a lieutenant of New France.
Chauvin, along with François Gravé Du Pont, obtained a fur trading monopoly for New France in 1599 from Henri IV. Although this was seriously amended in 1600, the two built a fort at Tadoussac that year. This location is generally recognized as the oldest surviving French settlement in the Americas. Chauvin is recognized as the founder of Tadoussac since Gravé was opposed to the actual location.
