Wilfred P. Moore, QC (born January 14, 1942) is a Canadian Senator representing Nova Scotia.

Born in Halifax, Moore received a Bachelor of Commerce degree from Saint Mary’s University in 1964 and a law degree from Dalhousie University in 1968. He was created a Queen's Counsel in 1983.

He was an alderman on Halifax city council from 1974 to 1980 and served as deputy mayor from 1977 to 1978. He has also served as Chairman of the Social Assistance Appeal Board for Halifax and Dartmouth; Chairman of the Halifax Metro Centre, and as a member of the Board of Governors of Saint Mary’s University. He also serves as Chairman of the Bluenose II Preservation Trust.

Moore was appointed to the Senate on the advice of Jean Chrétien on September 26, 1996. He sits as a Liberal.

Moore criticized the December 2008 senate appointments of 18 Conservative loyalists by Prime Minister Stephen Harper saying,"With regard to the rumoured filling of the vacancies, you have to look at the motivation...Is it just because he's afraid of losing government or is it because he wants the chamber to work, causing him to do his constitutional duty?...If it does happen I'm pleased the Senate will be filled and the chamber can work properly as one of our two houses or Parliament"[1].
