Marcel Aymar (born Baie Sainte-Marie, Nova Scotia) is a franco-ontarian musician, composer, writer and actor. He moved to Sudbury, Ontario in 1972 as a teen and was a founding member of the popular franco-ontarian group CANO, playing guitar. During this time, he also helped manage the Théâtre du Nouvel-Ontario.

Aymar and two other musicians wrote the theme song for CBC Television The National and SRC's Soirée du Hockey, the French equivalent to Hockey Night in Canada. He also wrote the soundtrack for the film Le Secret de Jérôme (Jerome's Secret), and toured with Robert Paquette and Paul Demers as the performing group Paquette-Aymar-Demers.

In 2003, he recorded his self-titled debut solo album, Aymar. The album is very diverse, featuring folk cajun styles, rock songs ("Dans un café américain à Paris"), and even ballads.

In 2009, Aymar was awarded the "Prix Hommage" at the Association des professionnels de la chanson et de la musique's 5th "Gala des prix Trille Or.
