Bernard Généreux (born April 23, 1962) is a Canadian politician, who was elected to represent the electoral district of Montmagny—L'Islet—Kamouraska—Rivière-du-Loup in the federal by-elections on November 9, 2009. He is a member of the Conservative Party.[1]

Prior to his election, Généreux served as mayor of the town of La Pocatière.

He was initially declared re-elected in his riding in the 2011 election, but it was announced on May 5, 2011, that verification of the polling station tallies had given the riding to his New Democratic Party opponent François Lapointe by just five votes,[2] after 110 votes for Lapointe were reportedly allocated in error to the Green Party candidate on election night.[3] Following a judicial recount,[3] Lapointe was declared elected.[4]
