Ernie Parsons (born June 5, 1946 in Belleville, Ontario) is a Justice of the Peace and former politician in Ontario, Canada. Until 2007 he was a member of the Legislative Assembly of Ontario, representing the riding of Prince Edward—Hastings for the Ontario Liberal Party. Parsons received a Civil Engineering degree from Carleton University in 1969, and was employed by the Ministry of Transportation from 1969 to 1974, and taught Technology courses at Loyalist College from 1974 to 1999. He also worked as a farmer, and was a board member of the Hastings County Children's Aid Society for twenty-five years and its chair for three. Parsons was a founding member of the Hastings County Museum of Agricultural Heritage, and sat on advisory committees to the Kingston Hotel Dieu, the Kingston General Hospital and the Queen's University Faculty of Medicine. Parsons served on the school board of the Hastings—Prince Edward district from 1982 to 1999.
