Peter Stefura (February 13, 1923 – August 16, 1982) was a farmer, a municipal councilor and Reeve (both in Lamont, Alberta) and served as a Canadian federal politician from 1957 to 1958.

Stefura first ran for a seat in the Canadian House of Commons in the 1957 federal election. He defeated 4 other candidates to win the Vegreville. Parliament was dissolved 1 year later and he ran for re-election in the 1958 federal election but was defeated by Progressive Conservative Frank Fane, whom Stefura had defeated 1 year earlier. Stefura attempted to win his seat and defeat Fane in the 1962 federal election but was not successful.

He died at St. Mary's Hospital in Camrose in 1982.[2]
