Jean-François Larose (born April 15, 1972) is a Canadian politician, who was elected to the Canadian House of Commons in the 2011 election.[1] He represents the electoral district of Repentigny as a member of Strength in Democracy.

Prior to being elected, Larose was a peace officer and a security guard. Larose has certificates from Université de Montréal in the areas of crisis management, violence and society, and police and security management. Larose had previously run in the 2009 Montreal municipal election, seeking the position of mayor of Le Plateau-Mont-Royal borough for the Parti Montréal Ville-Marie; he garnered 2.08% of the vote.

In the 2011-12 NDP leadership race, Larose supported Niki Ashton, serving as her campaign chair.[2]

On October 21, 2014, Larose, along with Jean-François Fortin, the independent (formerly Bloc Québécois) MP for Haute-Gaspésie—La Mitis—Matane—Matapédia, announced that they were forming Strength in Democracy, a new Quebec-only political party dedicated to representing the province's regions.[3]
