Donald Alexander McNiven (23 June 1887 – 31 July 1961) was a Canadian politician on the provincial and federal level. He was born in Walkerton, Ontario and became a barrister and judge.
He was elected as a provincial Liberal member to the Legislative Assembly of Saskatchewan at the Regina City riding in a by-election on 19 September 1922. He was a member of that legislature until his defeat in the 1929 provincial election.
McNiven resigned from the House of Commons on 19 October 1944 before the end of the 19th Canadian Parliament to become a judge on the Saskatchewan Court of King's Bench. In that same year, he also began to serve on various wartime-related boards. In 1949, he was made a judge of the Court of Appeal for Saskatchewan where he presided until shortly before his death in July 1961.
