Douglas Keith Anguish (born 8 July 1950) was a New Democratic Party member of the Canadian House of Commons. He was a consultant and political assistant by career.

He was elected at The Battlefords—Meadow Lake electoral district in the 1980 federal election and served in the 32nd Canadian Parliament. He left politics following the 1984 federal election in which he was defeated by John Kenneth Gormley of the Progressive Conservative party.

In the 1986 Saskatchewan provincial election, Anguish won at The Battlefords riding for the provincial NDP.[3] He was re-elected there in 1991 when the NDP's Roy Romanow became premier. Anguish was re-elected in 1995, then resigned from provincial politics and his cabinet position on 1 July 1996 to seek other work.[4]
