The Freedom Party of Ontario is a provincial political party in Ontario, Canada that was founded on 1 January 1984 by Robert Metz and Marc Emery - then of London, Ontario - as a successor to the Unparty.

The Freedom Party of Ontario's growth was hindered during the years of the Progressive Conservative government of Mike Harris (1994 through 2002): many who might otherwise have supported the Freedom Party believed that Harris' Progressive Conservative Party would be more likely to win seats at that point in time.
