Mount Royal Chalet (French: Chalet du Mont-Royal) is a building located near the summit of Mount Royal in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. The chalet was constructed in 1932[1] under the mayoralty of Camillien Houde as a make-work project during the Great Depression.[2] The French Beaux Arts structure was designed by Montreal architect Aristide Beaugrand-Champagne (1876-1950).[3]

The building can host various events with room for 300 to 700 patrons.[4] The southside of the building is a bricked courtyard and lookout with a view of Montreal's skyline from Mont-Royal.
