Sir William Price (August 30, 1867 – October 2, 1924) was a Canadian businessman and politician.
Born in Talca, Chile, the son of Henry Ferrier Price and Florence Rogerson, Price was educated at Bishops College School in Lennoxville, Quebec and later at St. Marks School, Windsor, England. He was elected to the Canadian House of Commons for the electoral district of Quebec West in a 1908 by-election. A Conservative, he was defeated in the 1911 election.
He raised two companies for service during the Boer War. He was one of the organizers of the Valcartier Military Camp (now CFB Valcartier). It was for this work that he was knighted. During World War I, he served as a Lieutenant-Colonel of the 171st Battalion.
