Miriam Waddington (ne Dworkin, 23 December 1917 – 3 March 2004) was a Canadian poet, short story writer and translator.

Born in Winnipeg, Manitoba, she studied English at the University of Toronto (B.A. 1939) and social work the University of Pennsylvania (M.A.). She worked for many years as a social worker in Montreal. She later relocated to the then Toronto suburb of North York, where she worked for North York Family Services. In 1964, she joined the English department at York University. She retired in 1983.

Waddington was part of a Montreal circle that included F.R. Scott, Irving Layton and Louis Dudek. Her poem "Jacques Cartier in Toronto" is featured on the back of the Canadian $100 bill released in 2004.

She is a well known name in Canadian literary circles, especially those dealing in Canadian poetry and literature in general. Her name is one that is discussed at the university level in courses that deal in Canadian literature.

She died in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. After her death, much of her own works and personal library were donated by her sons to the archives of Simon Fraser University in Burnaby, British Columbia. The donation was worth the approximate equivalent of a $25 000 dollar endowment. Her archival fonds is held at Library and Archives Canada.
