Halton is a provincial electoral district in Central Ontario, Canada. It elects one member to the Legislative Assembly of Ontario. It was created in 1999 from all of Halton North and part of Halton Centre. The riding also existed from 1867 to 1902. and from 1905 to 1967.

When the riding was created, it included all of the Regional Municipality of Halton north of a line following Dundas Street to Highway 407 to Upper Middle Road to Walkers Line to the QEW to Burlington City limits to Upper Middle Road.

In 2007, the riding lost all of the Town of Halton Hills. Also, the border following the 407 is altered so that it follows Guelph Line instead. Also, the territory east of Eighth Line and south of Dundas Street is also lost.
