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 Montreal and the western end being Ottawa. It is a sub-region of the Quebec City-Windsor Corridor.

The term was coined recently to describe the way that the two cities seem to be getting "closer" as the rural gap between the two cities slowly starts to close up due to Ottawa and Montreal expanding suburbs in the direction of each other.

Even so, there still is a good 100 kilometres of rural farmland seperating Ottawa and Montreal. However, even in this rural farmland, towns of over 1,000 people are quite common.

The Montreal-Ottawa Corridor includes the major centres of Ottawa, Gatineau, Montreal, Laval and Cornwall and has a population of 3,299,387 (2006), consisting of roughly 10% of Canada's population.
