Jean-Claude Malépart (3 December 1938 – 16 November 1989) was a French Canadian politician.

Born in Montreal, Quebec, the son of Charles-Auguste Malépart and Germaine Mérineau, Malépart was elected to the National Assembly of Quebec in the riding of Sainte-Marie in the 1973 election, after losing the 1970 election. He was defeated in the 1976 election.

A member of the Canadian House of Commons representing the ridings of Sainte-Marie (later Montreal—Sainte-Marie), and Laurier—Sainte-Marie, he was elected in the 1979, 1980, 1984, and 1988 federal elections. A Liberal, he was the Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Public Works from 1982 to 1984.

His daughter Nathalie Malépart ran as the Liberal Party of Quebec candidate in a 2006 by-election in the riding of Sainte-Marie–Saint-Jacques. She lost to the Parti Québécois candidate, Martin Lemay.

Malépart died in Montreal in 1989 and is buried in the Notre Dame des Neiges Cemetery.
