Arthur Boyle (1842 – December 10, 1919) was a politician and grocer. He was elected to the Canadian House of Commons in 1887 as a Member of the Conservative Party to represent the riding of Monck. He was defeated by John Brown in the 1891 election, but was acclaimed back into office in 1892 after Brown was unseated. He then continued to represent the riding until its abolition in 1896.

In 1868, he married Annie E. Cormick. Boyle was reeve of Dunnville from 1877 to 1879 and was warden for Haldimand County from 1878 to 1879. He ran unsuccessfully for a seat in the Legislative Assembly of Ontario in the 1886 provincial election.[1]
