Edmond Anthony Lapierre (25 January 1866 – 20 June 1960) was a Liberal party member of the Canadian House of Commons. He was born in Montreal and became a sales representative.

Lapierre attended St. Mary's Academy in Montreal. He worked with Greenshields in that city for 18 years. Moving to northern Ontario, he became a member of Sudbury's Board of Trade and was a director of the Mattawa Fur Company, and served on various associations.[1]

He was first elected to Parliament at the Nipissing riding in the 1921 general election after an unsuccessful campaign as a Laurier Liberal there in the 1917 election. Lapierre was re-elected in 1925 over Conservative candidate John Ferguson, and in 1926 over Conservative candidate and former Sudbury mayor Alfred Laberge. He left federal politics at the end of his term in the 16th Canadian Parliament and did not seek another term in the 1930 election. He was subsequently a member of the Legislative Assembly of Ontario for the provincial Liberals from 1934 to 1937.
