Albion Roudolph Foster (24 November 1875 – 6 February 1945) was a Liberal party member of the Canadian House of Commons. He was born in Middle Simonds, New Brunswick in Carleton County and became a farmer.

Foster attended schools at Middle Simonds. He was also active in law enforcement as a deputy sheriff for eight years, a high sheriff for a decade and for five years a police chief for the Transcontinenal Railway.[1]

He was acclaimed to Parliament at the Victoria—Carleton riding in a by-election on 16 June 1927 after a previous unsuccessful campaign there in the 1926 federal election.[2] After serving for the remainder of the 16th Canadian Parliament, Foster lost to Benjamin Franklin Smith of the Conservatives in the 1930 election.
