Michael (Mike) Redmond is a Canadian politician, currently the leader of the New Democratic Party of Prince Edward Island. A facilities director at the Murphy's Community Centre in Charlottetown, he won the leadership over activist Trevor Leclerc on October 13, 2012, following the resignation of James Rodd.

Under Redmond's leadership, the party — which has only ever elected one MLA, Herb Dickieson, to the Legislative Assembly of Prince Edward Island — had seen significant increases in voter support, moving into second place in public opinion polls, ahead of the Prince Edward Island Progressive Conservative Party, for the first time in its history.

Redmond and the NDP failed to win a seat in the 2015 provincial election.
