Christian Henry Pozer (December 26, 1835 – July 18, 1884) was a Canadian lawyer and politician.

Born in St-Georges d'Aubert Gallion (now Saint-Georges), Beauce, Lower Canada (now Quebec), the son of William Pozer and Ann Milbourne, he was called to the Lower Canada bar in 1860.

In 1863, he ran as a Liberal for the Legislative Assembly of the Province of Canada in the riding of Beauce and was defeated. He was elected in 1867 and re-elected in 1871. He resigned in 1874.

At the same time, he was elected to the House of Commons of Canada for the riding of Beauce in 1867. A Liberal he was re-elected in 1872 and 1874.

He resigned from the House of Commons when he was appointed a Senator in 1876 representing the senatorial division of Lauzon, Quebec. He died in office in 1884 and was buried in the Pozer Cemeterey in St-Georges-de-Beauce.[1]
