The 20-year-old from Richmond Hill, Ontario will face top-seeded Novak Djokovic for the title on Sunday.
Djokovic reached his sixth Paris Masters final with a 7-6 (5), 6-4 win Saturday against Grigor Dimitrov, beating him for the ninth time in their 10 career matches.
The top-ranked Serb remains on course for a fifth title at Bercy Arena.
Shapovalov, who won his first ATP title at the 250-level Stockholm Open last month, will compete in his first Masters 1000 final.
