John Douglas Campbell MacLean (born 24 March 1929 in Winnipeg, Manitoba) was a Progressive Conservative party member of the House of Commons of Canada. He was a barrister by career.

After an initial unsuccessful attempt in the 1957 federal election, MacLean was elected at the Winnipeg North Centre riding in the 1958 election.[1] After serving his only term, the 24th Canadian Parliament, MacLean was defeated in the 1962 election.

Prior to his professional career in law and politics, MacLean was a hockey player for the Brandon Wheat Kings, including in the 1949 Memorial Cup,[1] and later a coach and referee for teams in the Manitoba Junior Hockey League.[1]
