Pierrette Venne (born 8 August 1945 in Beauharnois, Quebec) was a member of the Canadian House of Commons from 1988 to 2003. By career, she is a lawyer.
Venne was elected in the
Saint-Hubert electoral district under the Progressive Conservative party in the 1988 general election. The riding was recently created from a restructuring of two former ridings. She was re-elected in Saint-Hubert in the 1993 general election, and was also re-elected in 1997 and 2000 when the riding was renamed Saint-Bruno—Saint-Hubert. Her term of office would cover the 34th, 35th, 36th and 37th Canadian Parliaments.
She left the Conservatives to join the
Bloc Québécois party on 12 August 1991. On 7 February 2003 she was ejected from the Bloc after she made critical comments about party leader Gilles Duceppe. Venne remained in Parliament until the end of her term after which she left politics.
