Sir Jean Lomer Gouin, KCMG (March 19, 1861 – March 28, 1929) was a Canadian politician. He served as 13th Premier of the Canadian province of Quebec, as a Cabinet minister in the federal government of Canada, and as the 15th Lieutenant Governor of Quebec.


He was born in Grondines, Quebec. On May 24, 1888, he married Éliza Mercier, daughter of Honoré Mercier. Their son, Paul Gouin, later led the Action libérale nationale party.

He was first elected to the Legislative Assembly of Quebec in 1897 in Montréal division no. 2, and was re-elected in 1900 and 1904. In the 1908 election he ran in both Portneuf (provincial electoral district) and Montréal no. 2, and was elected in the former and defeated in the latter. In 1912 he won election in both Portneuf and Saint-Jean; he elected to resign the Saint-Jean seat. He was re-elected in Portneuf in 1916 and 1919.

In 1920, he was named to the Legislative Council of Quebec, but resigned in 1921 without ever having taken his seat, and moved to federal politics.

In the federal election of 1921, he was elected as a Liberal member of Parliament, and served as Justice Minister under prime minister William Lyon Mackenzie King until 1924.

He was subsequently named Lieutenant Governor of Quebec in 1929, but served
