Philip Martin Christophers (December 21, 1871 – September 9, 1946) was a provincial politician from Alberta, Canada. He served as a member of the Legislative Assembly of Alberta from 1921 to 1930 sitting with the Dominion Labor caucus in opposition.

Political career

Christophers ran for a seat to the Alberta Legislature in the 1921 Alberta general election. He stood as a Dominion Labor candidate in the Rocky Mountain electoral district. The race was hotly contested Christophers defeated two other candidates to pick up the seat for his party.[3]

Christophers ran for a second term in the 1926 Alberta general election. He rolled up a very large majority over two other candidates to hold his seat.[4]

Chistophers retired from provincial politics at dissolution of the Assembly in 1930.
