Oliver Jones (December 15, 1821 – November 15, 1899) was a businessman, landowner and political figure in New Brunswick, Canada.

He was born in Head of Petitcodiac (later Petitcodiac, New Brunswick), the son of Jacob Jones and Hannah Corey. Jones moved to the Bend of Petitcodiac (later Moncton) in 1839, where he bought property including a hotel and built the first wharf. His first wife was Elizabeth Steeves. Jones married two more times: marrying Catherine Garden Simpson in 1852 and Elizabeth Jane Beer in 1863. In 1854, he helped establish the Westmorland Bank and he also served as its president until the bank's failure in 1867. With partners, Jones also established a tannery and a soap and candle factory. He served as mayor of Moncton in 1859. Jones also set up a shipbuilding company there that operated between 1863 and 1865. He died in Moncton after suffering a stroke at the age of 77.
