Halton is a federal electoral district in Ontario, Canada, represented in the Canadian House of Commons from 1867 to 1988 and again since 1997. Its population in 2001 was 100,055.

The district includes the Town of Milton and the northern parts of the Town of Oakville and the City of Burlington.

In 2003, it was defined to consist of:
