Stephen Fuhr (born 1969) is a Canadian Liberal politician, who was elected to represent the riding of Kelowna—Lake Country in the House of Commons of Canada in the 2015 federal election.[1][2]

Fuhr was born in Edmonton, and grew up in Kamloops. He attended Trinity Western University, earning a diploma in aviation technology, and subsequently joined what was then the Canadian Forces Air Command (now the Royal Canadian Air Force). He retired from the RCAF in 2009, and from 2009 to 2012 worked as an executive for SkyTrac Systems. Prior to his election, he was working as a private pilot.[3]

Fuhr is the first Liberal MP to represent Kelowna since 1972, and his election was considered something of a surprise.[4]
