Johan Emiel Scheffer (born 7 February 1948, in Jakarta) is an Australian politician, and a former member of the Victorian Legislative Council for the Australian Labor Party.
He was originally elected to the Legislative Council in 2002 for Monash Province, becoming only the second Labor member to represent that electorate since its creation in 1937. When Monash Province was abolished in 2006, he was successful in winning one of the five seats in the newly created Eastern Victoria Region of the Legislative Council.
