Gordon Kirkby BSc, LLB (born 26 September 1958 in Melfort, Saskatchewan) was a member of the Canadian House of Commons at the Prince Albert—Churchill River electoral district from 1993 to 1997. He is a lawyer by career, following studies at the University of Saskatchewan.
Kirkby was first elected to Prince Albert City Council as an alderman in October 1985. Kirkby was mayor of his home town Prince Albert from 1988 until 1993, when he began to campaign for a seat in Canadian Parliament with the Liberal party. He won his home riding in the 1993 federal election then served in the 35th Canadian Parliament. Kirkby lost to Reform party candidate Derrek Konrad in the 1997 election, finishing third in the riding which was by then restructured as Prince Albert.
Gordon Kirkby moved back to Prince Albert in June 2005 and started up his own law firm. Kirkby took on a partner later on in Philip Fourie, making their law firm Kirkby Fourie Law.
In the 2015 Canadian federal election, Kirkby attempted a federal political comeback in the riding of Prince Albert, which was unsuccessful. Running against Conservative incumbent Randy Hoback, Kirkby placed third.
