McCandless is a municipality in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania, United States. The population was 28,457 at the 2010 census. It was originally incorporated as a township; however, on January 1, 1975, McCandless Township adopted a new charter designating it a Home Rule Municipality with the name Town of McCandless. Despite the name, state government publications continue to recognize McCandless as a township of the first class rather than as a town. (Bloomsburg, in Columbia County, was incorporated as a town in 1870, and is recognized by these same publications as "the only incorporated town" in Pennsylvania.) Still, like all home rule municipalities in Pennsylvania, the Town of McCandless is not governed under the provisions of Pennsylvania's Township Code.

McCandless is part of the North Allegheny School District and participates in the multi-municipality Northland Public Library.

It has been ranked highly among Money Magazine's "Best Places to Live."
