Tom Perry is a former Canadian politician. He served as an MLA in the Legislative Assembly of British Columbia from 1986 to 1996, as a member of the British Columbia New Democratic Party. He qualified as a doctor. Perry was first elected to the Legislative Assembly in a by-election in Vancouver-Point Grey in 1989, after Kim Campbell resigned from the legislature to run in the 1988 federal election. At the time, Vancouver-Point Grey was a multiple-member district, and Perry served alongside Darlene Marzari. In the 1991 election, which was contested under new single-member boundaries, Marzari was the NDP candidate in Vancouver-Point Grey, while Perry stood in Vancouver-Little Mountain, where he was re-elected. He was the minister for advanced education, training and technology from 1991 to 1993. He did not run in the 1996 election, and was succeeded by Gary Farrell-Collins.
