The Parti unité nationale (National Unity Party), formerly the Parti démocratie chrétienne du Québec (Christian Democracy Party of Quebec), is a social conservative political party in Quebec, Canada. It was founded in 2000 by Roman Catholics associated with the Centre d’Information nationale Robert Rumilly. The founding leader of the party was Gilles Noël.[1]

Its program is a combination of Christian orthodoxy and Quebec nationalism. The party is concerned about the declining birth rate in Quebec, opposed to same-sex marriage and abortion, wants more support for families, and wider availability of Quebec-made consumer products.

The party won 3,575 votes in the April 2003 general election, or about 0.1% of the popular vote, and 1,620 votes in the March 2007 general election, or about 0.04% of the popular vote.
