Lucien Cannon, PC (January 16, 1887 – February 14, 1950) was a Canadian lawyer and politician.

Born in Arthabaska, Quebec, the son of Lawrence John Cannon and Aurélie Dumoulin, he studied law at the Laval University and was called to the Quebec Bar in 1910. His brother was Lawrence Arthur Dumoulin Cannon, a puisne judge of the Supreme Court of Canada. His nephew, Charles-Arthur Dumoulin Cannon, and grandson, Lawrence Cannon, were also MPs.

In by-election, he was elected to the Legislative Assembly of Quebec in the riding of Dorchester. A Liberal, he was re-elected in 1916. He resigned in 1917 to run again for the Canadian House of Commons in the riding of Dorchester in a by-election. He was defeated, but was elected in the 1917 federal election. He was re-elected in 1921, 1925, and 1926. From 1925 to 1926 and again from 1926 to 1930, he was the Solicitor General of Canada. He was defeated in the 1930 federal election but was re-elected in the 1935 election for the riding of Portneuf. He resigned in 1936 when he was appointed a judge.
