Claudette Cain was the mayor in the city of Gloucester, Ontario from 1991 until 2001 when Gloucester became part of the city of Ottawa.

Before being elected to Gloucester council, Cain was an assistant to the council and a press secretary for the Carleton Separate School board.[1] In 1991, Cain defeated incumbent mayor Harry Allen, in part due to an unpopular tax increase during Allen's tenure as mayor..[2] She was able to reduce municipal taxes during her time as mayor.[3]

In the Ottawa municipal election, 2000, Cain ran for the position of mayor of the combined city but came second to Bob Chiarelli.[4] In 2001, she was appointed justice of the peace in the eastern region of Ontario.[5]
