Lucien Larré (born 1933, Saint Walburg, Saskatchewan) is a Canadian Roman Catholic priest. He is the founder of Bosco Homes, a Saskatchewan-based organization operating homes for troubled youth, for which he was honoured by induction into the Order of Canada in 1983.
In July 2008, he indicated his intention to resign his membership in the Order of Canada in protest of the appointment to the order of Dr. Henry Morgentaler. It was accepted in January 2010, by the Governor General of Canada, The Right Honourable Michaëlle Jean.
In 1992, he was convicted in Saskatchewan of physically abusing children in his care and he was later pardoned. In 2006, his registration with the College of Psychologists of British Columbia was suspended pending a disciplinary review. The suspension was upheld by the Supreme Court who noted "that there are serious public protection concerns and an immediate risk to the public"
