The Val-d'Or Foreurs are a Canadian ice hockey team. They began playing in 1969. The team currently plays in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. They play their home games in Val-d'Or, Quebec at the Centre Air Creebec.

The name of the team is reference to the drilling operations that are associated with mining and exploration and are one of the major sources of blue-collar work in the area of Val-d'Or. The team's name is translated to "Valley of Gold Drillers".

They have won the President's Cup two times and have been to the Memorial Cup finals twice.
