John Hilliard Carnegie (1865-1937) was a farmer and an Ontario Conservative politician representing East Victoria during the late nineteenth and early twentieth century.

John Hilliard Carnegie (1865-1937) was born at Peterborough to John Carnegie (1837-1910) and Eleanor Hilliard. He attended High School in Peterborough, then studied at the Guelph Agricultural College, and finally in Scotland. Carnegie settled at Indian Point, Balsam Lake (in Victoria County south of Coboconk) working as a stock farmer until 1909. In the 1894 Ontario general election he was elected as a Conservative for East Victoria, and was subsequently re-elected in 1899, 1902, 1905 and in 1908. In 1897 he married E.J.

In 1909 Carnegie gave up farming and moved to Toronto, where he died in 1937.
