Heather Sinclair is a fictional character on the teen drama television series Degrassi: The Next Generation, and is featured as an in-joke or running-gag.

Over the series, there have been numerous references alluding to Heather Sinclair. She is often the subject and butt of students' jokes and criticism, and is only mentioned but never shown. She is pretty popular, as almost everyone in the cast has mentioned her or has been in a conversation about her at least once. Her popularity rivals Paige's, which causes Paige to mention her on several occasions spanning all of the seasons. As the years went on, more people spoke about Heather Sinclair, which was the reason for the Degrassi crew to create a short which aired on CTV and Noggin entitled, "Be Aware of Heather Sinclair." This is the first time in the history of Degrassi that she is given a voice and a character which people can relate to.

Heather Sinclair has never had her face shown on Degrassi, although in the episode # 410 “Neutron Dance”, she appeared with her face blocked by her raised arms, but is very talked about and ridiculed for her self-inflicted haircuts, overtweezed eyebrows, and bargain-basement nose job. But she seems to be popular since she beat Paige Michalchuk out for the Prom Queen crown previous to their Grade 9 year. She auditioned for video announcements during Liberty Van Zandt's run as President, but was once again the butt of a joke, as she had snot hanging from her nose during her audition. It is shown in the mini "Beware of Heather Sinclair" that her personailty is very much like the first season Paige.

In Season 7, her sister Holly will attend Degrassi.
