Michael L. Wallace (born September 3, 1963 in Brockville, Ontario) is a Canadian politician, currently representing the electoral district of Burlington in the Canadian House of Commons as a member of the Conservative Party of Canada.

He was first elected to Burlington City Council in the fall of 1994, representing the southeast area of Burlington, now Ward 5. He was re-elected in 1997, 2000, and 2003. Before running for councillor, Wallace graduated from the University of Guelph, majoring in economics and political science.

Wallace was nominated as the candidate for the newly formed Conservative Party for the 2004 federal election, running against long-time Liberal incumbent Paddy Torsney. A last-minute resurgence in Liberal support across Ontario resulted in a 4,000-vote victory for Torsney.

Wallace did not resign as councillor for the 2004 federal election and continued to represent Ward 5.
