Ottawa (City of) was a federal electoral district in the province of Ontario, Canada, that was represented in the Canadian House of Commons from 1867 to 1935.
It was created by the
British North America Act of 1867. It consisted of the city of Ottawa. After 1872, there were two members elected in this electoral district.
In 1892, it was redefined to exclude the New Edinburgh district of the city. In 1903, it was redefined as the city of Ottawa, excluding Rideau Ward. In 1914, it was redefined to exclude Hintonburgh, Bayswater and Mechanicsville neighbourhoods as well as Rideau Ward. It continued to return two members.
In 1924, it was redefined as the city of Ottawa, excluding Rideau Ward and that part of the city lying west of a line beginning at the intersection of the Rideau Canal with the Canadian Pacific Railway in the south, and following the railway, Somerset Street, Bayswater Avenue, Bayview Road and Mason Street, to the Ottawa River.
The electoral district was abolished in 1933 when it was divided into
Ottawa West and Ottawa East ridings.
