Gordon Meredith Lightfoot (born November 17, 1938) is a folk singer, composer and lyricist.

He is one of the first Canadian popular singers who achieved real stardom in his own country instead of moving to the USA.

Lightfoot was born in Orillia, Ontario, Canada.

He was inducted into the Canadian Music Hall of Fame in 1986 and in May 2003 was made a Companion of the Order of Canada, the country's highest honour.
