Rina Lasnier, GOQ (6 August 1915 – 9 May 1997) was a Québécois poet. Born in St-Grégoire d'Iberville-Mont-Saint-Grégoire, Quebec, she attended Collège Marguerite Bourgeoys and the Université de Montréal. Although she was the author of several plays, including Féerie indienne (1939), which was published as her first book, she is usually remembered as a poet.

Lasnier was the recipient of many honours, including the Prix David (1943 and 1974), the Prix Duvernay (1957), the Molson Prize (1971), the Prix France-Canada (1973) and the Lorne Pierce Medal (1974). In 1987, she was made a Grand Officer of the National Order of Quebec. She lived most her adult life in Joliette but returned to the St.-Jean-sur-Richelieu near the end of her life.
