Prince is a township in the Canadian province of Ontario, located within the Algoma District northwest of Sault Ste. Marie. Although the township is not part of the city of Sault Ste. Marie, some municipal services are contracted to the city.

The only named community within the township is Gros Cap. Most mail and telephone service in the township is part of Sault Ste. Marie's sortation area and telephone exchange.

One of the largest wind farms in Canada, the Prince Township Wind Farm, is centred in Prince Township. It provides enough electricity to serve 20,000 homes. The project is run by Brascan Power Wind.
