Reginald Percival (Percy) Vivian (16 October 1902 - 30 January 1986) was a Canadian politician, physician and professor of medicine. He served as a Progressive Conservative party member of the Canadian House of Commons.
Vivian was elected as a member of the Legislative Assembly of Ontario in 1943 for the Ontario Progressive Conservative party. From 1943 to 1946, he was Minister of Health and Public Welfare under Premier George A. Drew and remained a member of provincial Parliament until 1948, although he was chief of McGill University's Department of Health and Social Medicine in early 1947.
Almost a decade after leaving Ontario politics, Vivian was elected to the Canadian House of Commons at the Durham riding in the 1957 general election. After winning a second term in the 1958 election, Vivian was defeated in the 1962 election by Russell Honey of the Liberal party.
