Midsalip is a 4th class municipality in the province of Zamboanga del Sur, Philippines. According to the 2000 census, it has a population of 28,909 people in 5,479 households.


The town's name is from a Subanen word,"Migsalip" which means "to collect" or "accumulate".

Midsalip was finally made into a municipality on September 9, 1964, by virtue of Executive Order Number 94 signed by President Diosdado Macapagal. This didn’t last long, however, as it as dissolved on February 26, 1966 due to a Supreme Court decision regarding the legality of the funds disbursed by the municipal treasurer. As a result, Midsalip was reverted back to barrio status. It wasn’t until May 8, 1967, when the Republic Act No. 4871 was passed when Midsalip became a regular municipality again.
