Philip W. Andrewes (September 6, 1941) is a former politician in Ontario, Canada. He served in the Legislative Assembly of Ontario from 1981 to 1987, and was a cabinet minister in the governments of Bill Davis and Frank Miller. Andrewes was a member of the Progressive Conservative Party.
Andrewes was born in Beamsville, Ontario, and received a Bachelor of Science degree from the Ontario Agricultural College at the University of Guelph. He worked as a fruit grower before entering political life.
He was elected to the Ontario legislature in the 1981 provincial election, defeating Liberal Eric Ross Hall by 394 votes in the Lincoln constituency. He was appointed to Davis's cabinet on July 6, 1983 as Minister of Energy. Andrewes supported Frank Miller to succeed Davis in the Progressive Conservative Party's January 1985 leadership convention, and was appointed Minister of Agriculture and Food when Miller became Premier of Ontario on February 8, 1985.
Andrewes was re-elected in the 1985 election with an increased plurality, although the Progressive Conservatives were reduced to a fragile minority government in the legislature. He was promoted to Minister of Health on May 17, 1985, but accomplished little in the department before the Conservatives were defeated in the legislature a month later. In opposition, Andrewes served as his party's critic for Health and Energy.
