William Frederick Allen Phipps (May 4, 1942 – March 4, 2022) was a Canadian ordained minister of the United Church of Canada, lawyer, politician and social activist. He was the 36th Moderator of the United Church of Canada from 1997 to 2000. He became controversial in the church after showing support for gay ordination and not believing in a physical Resurrection of Jesus. Phipps was born in Toronto, Ontario.
In 2002, Phipps was the New Democratic Party candidate in the Calgary Southwest by-election running against future Prime Minister of Canada Stephen Harper. Phipps came in second with just over 20 per cent of the vote.
