Maurice Breton (August 15, 1909 – June 3, 2001) was a Canadian politician and lawyer. He was acclaimed after the resignation of Georges-Émile Lapalme to the House of Commons of Canada in a 1950 by-election as a member of the Liberal Party to represent the riding of Joliette—l'Assomption—Montcalm. He was re-elected in 1953 and 1957 and lost the election of 1958.
