Maeda Toshinaga (前田 利長?, February 15, 1562 – June 27, 1614) was a Japanese daimyo who was the second head of the Kaga Domain. He was the eldest son of Maeda Toshiie and married one of Oda Nobunaga's daughters, Ei-hime.
He supported Tokugawa Ieyasu, and, after receiving his brother Toshimasa's lands (Noto, 215,000 koku), controlled a total of 1,250,000 koku, an amount exceeded only by the Shogunate. Toshinaga built and resided in Kanazawa Castle.
He had no children and adopted his brother Toshitsune as his heir.
