Betty E. Unger (born August 21, 1943) is a Canadian politician and a former member of the Senate of Canada, from Alberta, Canada from January 2012 until her retirement in August 2018 upon reaching the mandatory retirement age of 75. Outside politics Unger owned and operated a successful nursing services company in Alberta for many years.

Political career

In 2000 Unger ran for the House of Commons of Canada as a candidate for the Canadian Alliance in Edmonton West, losing a close contest to Liberal Cabinet Minister Anne McLellan. The race was so close that the media prematurely declared a Canadian Alliance victory on election night.

In 2004 she ran as a candidate in the 2004 Alberta senate nominee election. She finished a close second place behind Bert Brown. She is the first Albertan woman to be elected a Senator in waiting. On January 6, 2012, she was appointed to the Senate on the advice of Prime Minister Stephen Harper by Governor General David Johnston.
