George Edward Vernot (February 27, 1901 – November 22, 1962) was a competitive swimmer who represented Canada in two consecutive Olympic Games during the early 1920s.

At the 1920 Summer Olympics in Antwerp, Vernot won a silver medal in the men's 1500-metre freestyle, and a bronze medal in the 400-metre freestyle. He also competed in the 100-metre freestyle, but placed third in his semifinal and did not advance to the event final.[1]

Four years later at the 1924 Summer Olympics in Paris, he was seventh in the 400-metre freestyle, and eighth in the 1500-metre freestyle.[1]
