County of Ottawa (French: Compté d'Ottawa) was a federal and provincial electoral district in Quebec, Canada, which was represented in the Legislative Assembly of the Province of Canada from 1830 to 1867, in the Canadian House of Commons from 1867 to 1892, and in the Legislative Assembly of Quebec from 1867 to at least 1919.

The federal electoral district was created by the British North America Act, 1867, which preserved existing electoral districts in Lower Canada. It was redistributed into the new electoral districts of Wright and Labelle in 1892.

The provincial electoral district was restructured in 1919.
