Alan M. Robinson (October 21, 1948 – December 6, 2013) was a Canadian politician in Ontario. He served in the Legislative Assembly of Ontario from 1981 to 1985, and was a cabinet minister in the government of Frank Miller. Robinson was a member of the Progressive Conservative Party.
He was elected to the Ontario legislature in the 1981 election, defeating New Democratic Party incumbent David Warner by 1,888 votes in Scarborough—Ellesmere. He served as a backbench supporter of Bill Davis's government for four years. Robinson supported Dennis Timbrell's unsuccessful bid to succeed Davis at the Progressive Conservative Party's January 1985 leadership convention, and was named a minister without portfolio and Chief Government Whip when Frank Miller became Premier of Ontario on February 8, 1985.
After leaving politics, Robinson became the president and CEO of PACex International, which describes itself as "Canada's National Packaging, Food Process, Material Handling & Logistics Exhibition". PACex purchased the Canadian Materials Handling & Logistics Show in 2003.
