List of Members of the House of Commons of Canada who sat as members of the Progressive Party of Canada or represented the United Farmers of Ontario (UFO) or United Farmers of Alberta (UFA) or the United Farmers elsewhere; the list does not include Liberal-Progressives, as these MPs sat with the Liberal caucus. In the 1930s, most remaining Progressive/United Farmers MPs joined the Co-operative Commonwealth Federation.
