Malcolm McFadyen was a Canadian politician, who represented 4th Kings in the Legislative Assembly of Prince Edward Island from 1882 to 1886. He was a member of the Prince Edward Island Liberal Party.

A school teacher, farmer and general merchant in Murray Harbour, Prince Edward Island, McFadyen ran unsuccessfully in the 1876 provincial election, the 1878 federal election and the 1879 provincial election before being elected in the 1882 provincial election.

During his term he became embroiled in a controversy when James Edwin Robertson was declared ineligible for election to the Canadian House of Commons after winning a seat in the 1882 federal election, on the grounds that he was still a sitting member of Prince Edward Island's legislative assembly, and therefore ineligible to run in the federal election. According to Robertson, in accordance with the process for resigning from the legislature he had submitted his resignation notice to two fellow MLAs, McFadyen and Peter McLaren, but a procedural error in McFadyen and McLaren's handling of the document had left the resignation improperly registered.
