David Dickson Rogers (June 10, 1845 – January 28, 1915) was a Canadian politician in the province of Ontario.

Born in County Monaghan, Ireland, his parents emigrated to Canada when he was an infant and settled in Prince Edward County, Upper Canada. Rogers was educated at the Kingston Collegiate Institute. A farmer, he settled in Frontenac County, Ontario. He was a Director and President of the Farmers' Institute and Agricultural Association. A member of the popular farmer-based Patrons of Industry, he faced no opposition and was acclaimed to the Canadian House of Commons for the electoral district of Frontenac in the 1896 federal election. He ran in the 1900 election as an independent candidate and was defeated.
