John (Jack) McIntosh (18 May 1909 - 14 April 1988) was a Progressive Conservative party member of the Canadian House of Commons. He was born in Wick, Caithness, Scotland and became a merchant by career.

The son of John McIntosh and Jessie Swanson, both natives of Scotland, McIntosh was educated in Swift Current, Saskatchewan. In 1935, he married Helen May Burroughs. He was a director of the Swift Current Mutual Insurance Company.[3] McIntosh served as a member of the town council for Swift Current from 1948 to 1950 and was mayor from 1955 to 1956.
