Ronald Stewart Moore (December 22, 1913 – November 21, 2003) was a Canadian politician from Manitoba. He served as a Co-operative Commonwealth Federation MP in the Canadian House of Commons from 1945 to 1949 representing the riding of Churchill.[1]

Moore was born in Foam Lake, Saskatchewan and worked on the Canadian National Railway as a young man. During World War II he enlisted with the Royal Canadian Navy and served from 1942 to 1945.[2] He was elected to parliament after the war in the 1945 federal election.[1]

After losing the 1949 federal election he returned to the CNR in Brandon, Manitoba before qualifying as an engineer and getting a job at CFB Shilo's heating plant. He remained active with the CCF and its successor, the New Democratic Party throughout his life.[1] Moore attempted to regain his seat in the 1953 federal election but was unsuccessful.[3] He died in 2003 in Brandon.[4]
