Frederick George Jacob Hahn (3 November 1911 – 5 February 1963) was a Social Credit party member of the Canadian House of Commons. He was born in Killaly, Saskatchewan and became a business executive, merchant, principal and teacher by career.
He was first elected at the New Westminster riding in the 1953 general election. He was re-elected there for a second and final term in the 1957 election. In 1958, Hahn was defeated by William McLennan of the Progressive Conservative party.

He subsequently ran unsuccessfully in the 1962 election at Vancouver Centre.
