Daryl Kramp (born June 14, 1947) is a Canadian politician. He is a current member of the Canadian House of Commons, representing Prince Edward—Hastings as a Conservative.

Kramp is a former investigator with the Ontario Provincial Police. He has been a municipal councillor and deputy reeve in the municipality of Madoc, Ontario where he currently lives. He works in the retail, wholesale and hospitality sectors. He has also organized junior-level ice hockey tours, and is a part-time instructor at St. Lawrence College, Kingston.

Kramp lost two federal election bids before his victory in 2004. In the 1997 election, he ran as a Progressive Conservative in the riding of Hastings—Frontenac—Lennox and Addington, finishing second against Liberal Larry McCormick. He ran in the same riding for the 2000 election, and this time finished third against McCormick and Canadian Alliance candidate Sean McAdam.

The Canadian Alliance and Progressive Conservatives merged in 2003 as the Conservative Party of Canada. In the 2004 election, Kramp ran as a Conservative in Prince Edward—Hastings, and narrowly defeated Liberal Bruce Knutson. The seat was previously held by Liberal cabinet minister Lyle Vanclief, who was not seeking re-election. He was re-elected in 2006 by a much larger margin.

Kramp has described himself as a Red Tory, although his voting record has been in line with the party's direction.

On Oct. 8, 2013, "on behalf of the Honourable Shelly Glover, Minister of Canadian Heritage and Official Languages, [Daryl Kramp] today announced support for the Tsi Kionhnheht Ne Onkwawenna Language Circle (TKNOLC) to develop Mohawk language-learning tools."[1]

Kramp is a member of the Canada-China Legislative Association (CCLA) which provides a forum for discussing bilateral and multilateral issues facing both Canada and China.[2]
