Michael Allen, better known as Mike Allen, (born November 20, 1960 in Fredericton, New Brunswick) is a Canadian politician. He represented the riding of Tobique—Mactaquac as a member of the Conservative Party of Canada in the House of Commons of Canada from 2006 until 2015 when he chose to retire from parliament.[1]

Allen comes from a very politically active family. His father, Ed Allen, was a longtime member of the Legislative Assembly of New Brunswick where he served in the cabinet of Richard Hatfield. His brother, Dale Allen, is the head of a coalition office that opposes recent hospital closures in the Upper Saint John River Valley.

Allen first stood for office in the 2004 federal election but was defeated by incumbent Andy Savoy by a margin of 3008 votes. Allen defeated Savoy in 2006 by 254 votes.
