Frank Madill (November 23, 1852 – November 25, 1895) was an Ontario lawyer and political figure. He represented Ontario North in the Legislative Assembly of Ontario from 1881 to 1883 and in the Canadian House of Commons from 1887 to 1895 as a Conservative member.

He was born in Scott Township, Ontario County, Canada West in 1852, the son of Henry Madill, an Irish immigrant. Madill attended the University of Toronto, receiving an M.A.. He went on to study law, was called to the bar in 1877 and set up practice at Beaverton. He was elected to the provincial assembly in an 1881 by-election held after Thomas Paxton was appointed sheriff for the county. In 1886, Madill married Florence Young, the daughter of the reeve of Beaverton. He ran unsuccessfully for the provincial seat in 1883 but was successful in the federal general election in 1887. Madill was a prominent member of the Freemasons. He died in office in 1895.
