Gustave Évanturel (March 19, 1879 – February 9, 1934) was an Ontario notary and political figure. He represented Prescott in the Legislative Assembly of Ontario from 1911 to 1923 as a Liberal and Independent Liberal and in the House of Commons of Canada as a Liberal member in 1925.[1]

He was born in Ottawa in 1879,[1] the son of François-Eugène-Alfred Évanturel and Louisa Lee,[2] and educated at the Collège Bourget in Rigaud, Quebec and the Université Laval. In 1910, he married Marie Emilia Chevrier.[3] He was a notary public based in Alfred[2] and president of a mutual life assurance company, L'Alliance Nationale.
