André Chabot is a municipal level politician in Calgary, Alberta, Canada who currently serves as the Alderman for Ward 10 of the Calgary City Council. He was elected in a 2005 by-election after Incumbent Margot Aftergood resigned after allegations of a vote rigging scandal surfaced involving mail in ballots from the 2004 Calgary municipal elections.

André Chabot represents the communities of Mayland Heights, Vista Heights, Abbeydale, Albert Park/Radisson Heights, Applewood, Forest Heights, Forest Lawn, Marlborough, Marlborough Park, Penbrooke Meadows and Red Carpet/Mountview,[1] in the city's south-east quadrant.

In 2006, he opposed a bylaw that would have made it an offence to spit, urinate, defecate, loiter, fight or show a knife in public.[2]

In 2007, he pushed for a bylaw to allow ashtrays at entry points into public buildings in an effort to avoid garbage created by discarded butts.[3]

On June 25, 2015, Chabot announced he intended to run for mayor of Calgary in the 2017 municipal election. [4]
