Esdras Minville (November 7, 1896 in Grande-Vallée — December 9, 1975) was a Quebec writer, economist and sociologist. He served as the Dean of the Faculty of Social Sciences at the Université de Montréal, and was the first French-Canadian to serve as head of HEC Montréal. A staunch defender of Catholic social doctrine, Minville helped to found several co-operatives in the province.

He contributed to the Rowell-Sirois Commission, and chaired the Montreal Chamber of Commerce in 1947. His nationalist ideas resembled those of Victor Barbeau, François-Albert Angers and Lionel Groulx.
