Dany Morin (born December 19, 1985) is a Canadian businessman and former politician, who served in the House of Commons of Canada from 2011 to 2015. He represented the electoral district of Chicoutimi—Le Fjord as a member of the New Democratic Party.

A chiropractor, he was one of five openly gay candidates elected to Parliament in the 2011 election.[1] He served as the NDP associate critic for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and transsexual issues, alongside lead critic Randall Garrison.[2]

Morin was defeated in the 2015 election by Liberal Denis Lemieux.[3] Following his electoral defeat, he launched Monsieur Fulgence, an e-commerce project to promote local artisans and craftspeople from the Saguenay–Lac-Saint-Jean region.[3]
