Angela Vautour (born April 10, 1960 in Rexton, New Brunswick) is a former Canadian politician, who represented the electoral district of Beauséjour—Petitcodiac in the House of Commons from 1997 to 2000.

Vautour was elected in the 1997 election as a New Democrat, as part of a Maritime breakthrough for the party. Some credit the NDP's success to the Liberal Party government's controversial reforms of the Unemployment Insurance system.[citation needed]

On September 27, 1999, Vautour crossed the floor to join the Progressive Conservative caucus.[1] She stood for election as a PC candidate in the 2000 election, but was defeated by Liberal candidate Dominic LeBlanc.[2] In 2004, she ran for the newly formed Conservative Party of Canada, but again was defeated.
