Roland Haché, (born June 14, 1947 in Nigadoo, New Brunswick) is a politician in New Brunswick, Canada. He was a member of the Legislative Assembly of New Brunswick representing the electoral district of Nigadoo-Chaleur from 1999 to 2014.[2]

He earned a Bachelor of Arts and a Bachelor of Education at the University of Moncton and taught classes at the college level.

Haché entered politics when he was elected mayor of Petit-Rocher, New Brunswick in a 1995 by-election held after no candidates came forward in the municipal election earlier that year. He was re-elected by acclamation in 1998.

He left his post as mayor in 1999, following his election to the legislature. Haché, a Liberal, was the only non-incumbent of his party to win a seat in that election that saw his party reduced from 44 to 10 seats.

In 2002, he was co-chair of Shawn Graham's successful campaign for the leadership of his party. He was re-elected in 2003 and served as critic for the department of Business New Brunswick from the election to June 20, 2006 when he became election readiness chair for Northern New Brunswick for the coming election and chair of the Legislature's health committee.

He was re-elected in the 2006 election when his party formed the government.
