Angus McGillivray (January 22, 1842 – ) was a lawyer and political figure in Nova Scotia, Canada. He represented Antigonish County in the Nova Scotia House of Assembly as a Liberal member from 1878 to 1891 and from 1895 to 1902.

He was born in Bailey's Brook, Pictou County, Nova Scotia, the son of John McGillivray of Scottish descent, and moved to Antigonish with his parents while still young. He was educated at Saint Francis Xavier University. McGillivray was called to the Nova Scotia bar in 1874. In 1878, he married Maggie McIntosh. He served as speaker for the assembly from 1883 to 1886. McGillivray was defeated when he ran for election in 1894.
