Ludger Lemieux (February 9, 1872–October 27, 1953) was a Quebec architect who designed a number of notable Art deco structures in Montreal's Saint-Henri district. While he often worked in partnership with Joseph-Honoré MacDuff, his best-known structure, the Atwater Market, was designed not with MacDuff but with his son Paul M. Lemieux.
