John Simpson (December 27, 1807 – September 19, 1878) was a businessman and political figure in Canada West.

He was born in Niagara District and the town council for Niagara, serving as mayor from 1852 to 1855. In 1857, he was elected to the Legislative Council for Niagara; he was reelected in 1861 and 1863. In March 1864, he was named to the Executive Council as provincial secretary. Later that year, he resigned his seat, allowing Angus Morrison to enter the cabinet. He was appointed deputy auditor general and served in that post until his death in Ottawa in 1878.
