Niagara Falls is a provincial electoral division in Ontario, Canada. It was created prior to the 1914 provincial election, and has existed continuously since then.

Its boundaries were significantly redrawn in 1999, when Ontario adjusted all of its provincial electoral divisions to match those at the federal level.
