Frantz Benjamin is a Canadian politician, currently a member of Montreal City Council and the Chairman of the City Council. He represents the district of Saint-Michel in the borough of Villeray–Saint-Michel–Parc-Extension.[1]

Formerly associated with the Union Montreal political party, he resigned on October 30, 2012 in protest against the allegations of corruption surrounding mayor Gérald Tremblay at the Charbonneau commission hearings.[1] He sat as an independent councillor until June 2013, when he reaffiliated with the new Équipe Denis Coderre.[2]
