Fraser entered provincial politics at the Cariboo riding for the Conservatives in the 1909 British Columbia election, joining fellow Conservative Michael Callanan in the two-member riding. He was re-elected there in 1912. After Cariboo was changed to a single-member riding, Fraser was the sole Conservative candidate in the 1916 provincial election but was defeated by John McKay Yorston of the Liberals.
He was elected to Parliament at the federal Cariboo riding in the 1925 general election then re-elected in 1926 and 1930. Fraser was defeated by James Gray Turgeon of the Liberals in the 1935 federal election.
