The Montreal-Ottawa Corridor is a heavily populated region in both Ontario and Quebec. It is an east-west corridor with the eastern end being Greater Montreal and the western end being Ottawa-Gatineau. It is a sub-region of the Quebec City-Windsor Corridor. The Montreal-Ottawa Corridor includes the major centres of Montreal, Ottawa, Laval, Gatineau, and Cornwall and has a population of 5,700,000 (2020 estimate), comprising roughly 15% of Canada's population.

The term was coined recently as the metropolitan areas of Greater Montreal and Ottawa-Gatineau continue to expand towards each other, thus decreasing the rural gap between them. Commuting between the cities continues to increase as the drive is usually less than 2 hours long (relatively very short for two large cities in Canada), in addition to the Montreal-Ottawa-Toronto train and flight corridor being the busiest in Canada. Despite this expansion, there still exists significant rural areas between the cities, however towns of over 1,000 people are very common in this gap.
