Carleton—Mississippi Mills (formerly known as Lanark—Carleton and Carleton—Lanark) is a federal electoral district in Ontario, Canada, that has been represented in the House of Commons of Canada since 1988.

This riding was created in 1987 from parts of Lanark–Renfrew–Carleton and Nepean–Carleton ridings. At first, it was named "Carleton–Lanark". The name was changed to the current name as of September 1, 2004. The riding consists of the former Townships of Ramsay and Pakenham in the Town of Mississippi Mills, the former Townships of Goulbourn and West Carleton, and the former city of Kanata all in the city of Ottawa.

Initially, the boundaries of the riding were contentious. According to a report of the House of Commons committee that reviewed all new riding boundaries created in that year’s redistribution of ridings, “the Township of Mississippi Mills has strenuously protested being placed within Carleton–Lanark. It feels it does not belong to, and should not be attached to, an Ottawa-focused riding.” In May 2004, Mississippi Mills town council voted to be moved out of the riding and into the same riding as the rest of Lanark County. Over 1,000 residents of the township mailed postcards to the Speaker of the House of Commons protesting the new boundaries.[3]

Gordon O'Connor of the Conservative Party of Canada has been the riding's Member of Parliament since 2004. During this time, he has served as the Minister of National Revenue and the Minister of National Defence.

Following the Canadian federal electoral redistribution, 2012, the riding will be dissolved into Kanata—Carleton, Carleton and Lanark—Frontenac—Kingston.
