The Nearctic Stakes is a Canadian Thoroughbred horse race run annually in mid October at Woodbine Racetrack in Toronto, Ontario. The Grade I sprint is raced on turf over a distance of six furlongs and currently offers a purse of $500,000.

Previously a Grade II race, it was upgraded to Grade I status for 2010.

Inaugurated in 1973 to honor Windfield's Farms champion Nearctic, the 1958 Canadian Horse of the Year, Canadian Horse Racing Hall of Fame inductee, and sire of the 20th Century's most important sire, Northern Dancer.

The Nearctic Stakes was raced on dirt until 1995 when it was shifted to the Turf.
