The Val-d'Or Foreurs are a junior ice hockey team based in Val-d'Or, Quebec, Canada. The team was founded for the 1993–94 season of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League, a member of the Canadian Hockey League. Former Quebec Nordiques and Trois-Rivières Draveurs star, Pierre Aubry was the team's first coach.

The team has won the President's Cup twice, in 1997–98 and in 2000–01. They have also been in the Memorial Cup twice. They lost in the round robin in the 1998 tournament, and lost in the 2001 finals to the Red Deer Rebels. Their home arena is the Centre Air Creebec.

In 1996, the Rouyn-Noranda Huskies began play, giving the Foreurs a natural geographical rival in north-western Quebec. Rouyn-Noranda lies approximately 100 kilometres to the west of Val d'Or. Games between the two teams are a major event in the region and draw much larger than average crowds.
