Angus McIsaac (1842 – June 12 1902) was a Nova Scotia lawyer, judge and political figure. He represented Antigonish in the Canadian House of Commons as a Liberal member from 1873 to 1885.

He was born in Antigonish, Nova Scotia in 1842 and studied at Saint Francis Xavier College. McIsaac served as inspector of schools for Antigonish County. He articled in law with William Joseph Croke and Daniel McDonald and was called to the bar in 1871. McIsaac was elected to the House of Commons in an 1873 by-election held after Hugh McDonald was named to the Nova Scotia Supreme Court. He resigned from his seat in 1885 to accept an appointment as judge in the county court.

His brother Colin Francis represented Antigonish in the Nova Scotia assembly and the House of Commons.
