The Moderator of the United Church of Canada is the presiding leader of the United Church of Canada, Canada's largest Protestant denomination. The church is highly decentralized and non-dogmatic and the moderator has only limited power. The moderator presides over the meeting of the court, thus the moderator is the chairperson, and is understood to be a member of the court acting primus inter pares. Sitting moderators are styled the "Right Reverend" if they are ordained clergy (since the election of Robert McClure, a medical doctor, in 1968, moderators have not necessarily been clergy) and the "Very Reverend" after their retirement, in keeping with the practice of the pre-Church Union Presbyterian Church in Canada.

Moderators are elected at the church's triannual General Councils. The current moderator is Mardi Tindal.
