Donald Graham Smith (born May 9, 1958 in Edmonton, Alberta) was a Canadian swimmer, who won the silver medal in the 4x100m Medley Relay at the 1976 Summer Olympics in Montreal, Canada. He did so alongside Stephen Pickell, Clay Evans, and Gary MacDonald. His brother George (born 1949) also competed in swimming.

At the 1978 Commonwealth Games in Edmonton, he became the first competitor to win six gold medals at a single Commonwealth Games; he won the 100m and 200m breaststroke, 200m and 400m individual medleys, and was part of the winning 4x100 freestyle and medley relay teams. Smith twice broke the world record in the men's 200m individual medley (long course). He also won a National Swimming Championship at the University of California in Berkeley.
