In Opposition was a Canadian television sitcom, which aired on CBC Television in 1989. The show lasted only a single season.

It starred Kathleen Laskey as Karen Collier, a rookie Member of Parliament, who represented the fictional riding of Moncton—Macquedewawa for the also-fictional Dominion Party of Canada. The show also starred Lawrence Dane as her party leader, Damir Andrei as a caucus colleague, and Jennifer Dale as Collier's neighbour Mary Margaret McCarthy.

The show was the CBC's second unsuccessful attempt to create a politically themed sitcom, following 1987's Not My Department.
