Claire Samson is a Canadian politician in Quebec, who was elected to the National Assembly of Quebec in the 2014 election.[1] She represents the electoral district of Iberville as a member of the Coalition Avenir Québec.

She was also the party's candidate in Iberville in the 2012 election.

Within weeks of being reelected in the 2018 election, Samson publicly announced that she was considering quitting politics, both for health reasons and because she felt snubbed by premier François Legault in not having been offered a cabinet position despite having been entrusted with a highly visible role as a party spokesperson during the election campaign.[2]
