The Estonian Reform Party is an Estonian political party founded on November 13, 1994. It followed the earlier Estonian Liberal Democratic Party. It is often called the "Squirrel Party" because its logo looks like a squirrel.

Its policy is to form a prosperous civil society, with a simple tax system and minimal state intervention in the market.

The Reform Party belongs to the Union of European Liberal and Reform Parties, which also includes the Center Party.

Kaja Kallas, who has been Prime Minister since 2021, has been leader of the party since 2018.[2]
