InfoGord Brown is a Canadian politician. He is a current member of the Canadian House of Commons, representing the Ontario riding of Leeds—Grenville as a Conservative.

Brown has a degree in political science from Carleton University (1983), and is a small businessman in Gananoque, Ontario. He has worked in local youth outreach programs, and owns a storefront youth centre.

Brown served on the Gananoque Town Council, and was President of the local Progressive Conservative Association before running for federal office himself. He left the Progressive Conservatives for the Canadian Alliance in 2000, and brought several local PC organizers with him.

Brown ran for the Canadian Alliance in the federal election of 2000, and lost to Liberal Joe Jordan by only 55 votes (as confirmed by a recount).

He ran again in the 2004 federal election, following the merger of the Canadian Alliance and Progressive Conservative parties as the Conservative Party of Canada. This time, he defeated Jordan by just under 10,000 votes.

Brown is known to be pro-life.
