Mag Ruffman (February 28 1957) is a Canadianmarker comedian, actress and television host.

She has played roles in films such as Anne of Green Gables and Anne of Avonlea and TV series Road to Avonlea.

In addition to her acting, Ruffman has built a second career as a home improvement specialist, hosting shows for W Network, Canada's women's network. She hosted A Repair to Remember, a do it yourself repair series, in 1999 and 2000. In 2000, she launched a second series, Anything I Can Do, a workshop show. Although Ruffman brings her background in comedy to the shows, she should not be mistaken for Red Green: she is skilled with tools and is popular with both women and men for her unpretentious ability to make home improvement seem like an attainable goal. Somewhat ironically, she got her start in television in the Canadian sketch comedy series The Comedy Mill, which starred Steve Smith, better known as Red Green.

Ruffman also writes a weekly home improvement column, ToolGirl, for the Toronto Star. She published a collection of her ToolGirl columns as a book, How Hard Can It Be?, in 2003.

Ruffman championed The Lost Garden by Helen Humphreys in Canada Reads 2003.

Ruffman is also involved in the Canadian division of Habitat for Humanity.

Mag Ruffman also provided the voice of the character "Lilly" in the Canadian animation Timothy Goes to School.
