François-Philippe Champagne (born June 25, 1970) is a Canadian Liberal politician, who was elected to represent the riding of Saint-Maurice—Champlain in the House of Commons of Canada in the 2015 federal election.[1]

Champagne was raised in Shawinigan, Quebec, and attended studied law at the Université de Montréal and Case Western Reserve University School of Law. After several years working as a senior attorney for Elsag Bailey Process Automation, he joined ABB Group in 1999, eventually rising to group vice president and senior counsel. In 2008 he joined Amec PLC as a strategic development director, and was designated a "young global leader" by the World Economic Forum. In an interview with The Globe & Mail in 2009, Champagne expressed his desire to eventually return to Canada and enter politics, citing fellow Shawinigan resident Jean Chretien as an inspiration.[2]

Subsequently returning to Canada, he became involved in a variety of business and non-profit ventures. He became the Liberal candidate for Saint-Maurice—Champlain, and was elected to Parliament on October 19, 2015.[3]
