Charles-Édouard Ferland (2 March 1892 – 8 January 1974) was a Canadian jurist and Liberal member of the House of Commons of Canada and Senate of Canada. He was born in Sainte-Élisabeth, Quebec in Joliette County and became a lawyer by career.

Ferland attended seminary at Joliette then the Université de Montréal where he received Bachelor of Arts, Ph.L and LL.L degrees.[1]

He was first elected to Parliament at the Joliette riding in a by-election on 17 December 1928 then re-elected there in the 1930 general election. When riding boundaries were changed in 1933, Ferland sought re-election at the new Joliette—l'Assomption—Montcalm riding and won that seat in the 1935 election and re-elected there in 1940. After completing that term, he was appointed in 1945 to the Senate and remained in that post until April 1951 when he resigned to accept a position as a Puisne Judge on the Superior Court of Quebec.[2]
