The Grandmaster of Quebecshire (Quebecshirite: Grandmaster du Québecshire) is the title of Quebecshire’s formal Head of State. The position was established in 1624 and has an indefinite term and is chosen by the High Council of Quebecshire. The first Grandmaster of Quebecshire was Yvon Delsarte. Responsibilities of the Grandmaster include presiding over the High Council (in addition to being a sitting member), which is the supreme judiciary of Quebecshire. The Grandmaster is expected to be a unifying political and cultural figure in Quebecshire. Due to the style and role of the position, it is often referred to as a selective monarchial post.

The Grandmaster of Quebecshire lives at an official estate at the Concord Palace in Quebecshire City and makes frequent public appearances and tours of the nation, typically with other members of the High Council.

The Grandmaster of Quebecshire's title is formally stylized as Grandmaster of Quebecshire and the Quebecshirite peoples, His Excellency.
