Sir Frank Wilton Baillie, KBE (August 9, 1875 – January 2, 1921) was a Canadian industrialist who played a significant role in establishing the modern steel industry in Canada. During World War I, he turned his attention to the production of military aeroplanes, and was knighted for his contributions to the war effort. He was the first Canadian to be made a Knight Commander of the Order of the British Empire.

In 1903 Sir Frank Wilton Baillie started up with Frank Porter Wood (his neighbour on Crescent Road, Toronto) and his brother James W. Baillie, a brokerage firm, Baillie Brothers and Company (later Baillie, Wood, and Croft), which operated on the Toronto Stock Exchange.
