Michael Adams, QC (August 13, 1845 – January 1, 1899) was a Canadian politician.

Born in Douglastown, Parish of Newcastle, New Brunswick, of Irish descent, Adams was educated in Douglastown. He was married twice: first, in 1869, to Miss Catherine L. Patterson, and second, on November 29, 1882, to Miss Nealis. He was called to the Bar of New Brunswick on October 14, 1868, and was appointed a Queen's Counsel in February 1891.

Adams held a seat in the Legislative Assembly of New Brunswick from 1870 to 1874, and also from 1878 to 1887. A member of the Executive Council, he was Surveyor-General from July 13, 1878 to February 26, 1883. He resigned in 1887 to run for the Canadian House of Commons, but was defeated in the 1887 federal election. He was first elected to the House of Commons for the riding of Northumberland, at the general election held in 1891, and continued to sit until January 1896, when he was called to the Senate of Canada, representing the senatorial division of Northumberland, New Brunswick.

A Conservative, he died in office in 1899.
