Gulzar Singh Cheema (born August 11, 1954) is an Indian-born doctor and a Canadian politician. Dr. Cheema was a member of the Legislative Assembly of Manitoba from 1988 to 1993, and a member of the Legislative Assembly of British Columbia from 2001 to 2004, making him one of only a few Canadian politicians to sit in two provincial legislatures since Confederation. He was also a cabinet minister in the government of Premier of British Columbia Gordon Campbell from 2001 to 2004, and was a candidate of the Liberal Party of Canada in the federal election of 2004.

He received a Bachelor of Arts degree in medicine and surgery from Punjab University in 1977, and worked as a clinical instructor for the next two years. Cheema moved to Canada in 1979, when he married Harinder Claire (daughter of the late, Mr. Inderjit S. Claire).
