Michael Allen, better known as Mike Allen, (born November 20, 1960 in Fredericton, New Brunswick) is a Canadian politician. He was elected to represent the riding of Tobique—Mactaquac as a member of the Conservative Party of Canada in the House of Commons of Canada in the January 2006 federal election.

Allen comes from a very politically active family. His father, Ed Allen, was a longtime member of the Legislative Assembly of New Brunswick where he served in the cabinet of Richard Hatfield. His brother, Dale Allen, is the head of a coalition office that opposes recent hospital closures in the Upper Saint John River Valley.

Allen first made a bid for office in the 2004 federal election but was defeated by incumbent Andy Savoy by a margin of 3008 votes. Allen defeated Savoy in 2006 by 254 votes.
