Honoré Brunelle Tourigny (September 23, 1857 – September 25, 1918) was a surveyor, engineer and political figure in Quebec. He represented Nicolet in the Legislative Assembly of Quebec from 1888 to 1890 as a Conservative.
He was born in Gentilly, Canada East, the son of Honoré Tourigny and Célina Brunelle, and was educated at the Collège de Nicolet, where he received a degree in civil engineering and surveying. Tourigny was surveyor for the town of Trois-Rivières and chief engineer for the St. Lawrence, Lower Laurentian and Saguenay Railway. In 1881, he married Lumina Legendre.
