Archibald Fraser (April 22, 1869 – October 10, 1932) was a Scottish-born industrialist in New Brunswick involved in the forest and pulp and paper industries.

The son of Donald Fraser, he was born in Aberdeen and came to New Brunswick with his family four years later. His father had entered the lumber business by 1877 and, in 1884, Archibald and his brother Donald Jr. joined the family business.
In 1917, they formed Fraser Companies Limited. The business expanded to include sawmills in New Brunswick and Quebec and sulphite pulp mills in Edmundston and Chatham. Fraser also served as a director of the Royal Bank of Canada, the New Brunswick Telephone Company, the Maritime Trust Company of Saint John and the Rolland Paper Company (now a division of Cascades). At the time of his death, he was president of Fraser Companies, Limited, of Fraser Paper, Limited, of the Restigouche Company, Limited and of Snowflake Lime Limited.
