Neil Young (born August 28, 1936) is a former Canadian politician. He emigrated to Canada in the 1950s and worked as a machinist in the electrical industry. He later became an organizer for the United Electrical Workers Union.
He ran unsuccessfully for Toronto City Council's Ward 9 in 1976. In a closely contested nomination race, he won the New Democratic Party nomination for the Beaches federal electoral district by one vote in 1978. In the federal election of 1979 he lost narrowly to Progressive Conservative candidate Robin Richardson in an election that resulted in Joe Clark's Progressive Conservatives winning a narrow minority government.
After the fall of Joe Clark's government in December, 1979, Young was elected MP in the general election of February, 1980.
