Herbert Sylvester Clements (November 8, 1865 – November 30, 1939) was a Canadian politician.

Born in Dover Township, Canada West, a manufacturer and farmer, he was first elected to the Canadian House of Commons in the 1904 federal election for the Ontario electoral district of Kent West. A Conservative, he was defeated in 1908. He was elected in the 1911 elections for the British Columbia riding of Comox—Atlin. He was re-elected in 1917 to the redistributed seat, then named Comox-Alberni, where he was defeated in 1921.

Legacy

The Village of Port Clements, British Columbia, in the Queen Charlotte Islands, is named for him (the islands were part of Comox-Atlin).
