Simon-Napoléon Parent (September 12, 1855 – September 7, 1920) was the 12th Premier of the Canadian province of Quebec from October 3, 1900 to March 21, 1905, as well as serving as President of the Quebec Bridge and Railway Company.
He resigned in 1897 when he was appointed to Félix-Gabriel Marchand’s Cabinet but was re-elected in the subsequent by-election, as well as in 1900 and 1904. Marchand died in office on September 25, 1900, and Parent succeeded him. He won the 1900 election and the 1904 election and resigned in 1905 when 44 Liberal MLAs, led by Lomer Gouin, Adélard Turgeon and William Alexander Weir, pressured him to resign.
Parent also served as mayor of Quebec City from 1894 to 1906.
