Margaret Marshall Saunders CBE (May 13, 1861 - February 15, 1947) was a Canadian author.

Born in the village of Milton, Queens County, Nova Scotia, the daughter of a Baptist minister, she is most famous for her novel Beautiful Joe. It is a story narrated by a dog who has had a difficult puppy hood with many obstacles including a cruel owner. When the book was published in 1894, both it and its subject received worldwide attention. It was the first Canadian book to sell over a million copies, and by the late 1930s had sold over seven million copies worldwide.

In 1934, Saunders was made a Commander of the British Empire (C.B.E.), at the time her country's highest civilian honor. Together with fellow Canadian author, Lucy Maud Montgomery, Saunders co-founded the Maritime branch of the Canadian Women's Press Club.

Following the success of Beautiful Joe, Saunders wrote more than twenty other stories, a number of which provided social commentary on such things as the abolition of child labor, slum clearance, and the improvement of playground facilities.

Saunders died in 1947 in Toronto, Ontario where she had lived for a number of years.
