The Ottawa District was a historic district in Upper Canada which existed until 1849. It was created in 1816 by splitting the counties of Prescott and Russell from the Eastern District; the district town was L'Orignal.

In 1838, Gloucester township from Russell County was transferred to a new Dalhousie District.

In 1849, the district was replaced by the United Counties of Prescott and Russell.
