Albert De Martin (born February 20, 1951 in Montreal, Quebec) is a politician from Quebec, Canada. He was an Action démocratique du Québec Member of the National Assembly for the electoral district of Huntingdon from 2007 to 2008.

From 1987 to 2000, De Martin served as a municipal councillor in Godmanchester. Heavily involved in the farming and agriculture industries, he was co-owner of the local farm Fermes AJIRO 1989 inc. for 27 years. He was also an administrator for several associations and organisations including the union of the Union des Producteurs Agricoles (Saint-Anicet branch), the local development for the Upper Saint-Lawrence region and the Saint-Jean de Valleyfield commercial culture union.

De Martin was first elected to the National Assembly in the 2007 election with 43% of the vote. Liberal incumbent André Chenail finished second with 31% of the vote. De Martin was defeated in the 2008 election.

During the election campaign, De Martin received the endorsement of controversial but influential Huntingdon mayor Stéphane Gendron, who reportedly had stormy relations with Chenail.[2]

De Martin ran for the Conservative Party of Quebec in the 2012 election.[1] He will run for the Conservative Party of Canada in the upcoming federal election.
