Angela Vautour (born April 10, 1960 in Rexton, New Brunswick) is a former Canadian politician, who represented the electoral district of Beauséjour—Petitcodiac in the House of Commons from 1997 to 2000.
Vautour was elected in the 1997 election as a New Democrat, as part of a Maritime breakthrough for the party. Some credit the NDP's success to the Liberal Party government's controversial reforms of the Unemployment Insurance system.
On September 27, 1999, Vautour crossed the floor to join the Progressive Conservative caucus. She stood for election as a PC candidate in the 2000 election, but was defeated by Liberal candidate Dominic LeBlanc. In 2004, she ran for the newly formed Conservative Party of Canada, but again was defeated.
