Adrien Meunier (24 December 1905 – 31 October 1971) was a Liberal party, initially independent Liberal, member of the Canadian House of Commons. He was born in Saint-Liboire, Quebec and became a lawyer by career.

He first attempted to win a House of Commons seat in the 1949 federal election at Papineau but was defeated by independent candidate Camillien Houde. Meunier won the riding in the 1953 election as an independent Liberal candidate defeating official Liberal candidate Émile Dufresne. Meunier was then re-elected to successive terms in Parliament in the 1957, 1958 and 1962 federal elections. After completing his term in the 25th Canadian Parliament, Meunier did not campaign for another term in Parliament and left federal political office.
