'''Southern Ontario''' is a region of the province (Provinces and territories of Canada) of Ontario, Canada. It is the most densely populated and southernmost region in Canada. Situated south of Algonquin Park, it covers between 14 to 15% of the province, depending on the inclusion of the Parry Sound (Parry Sound District, Ontario) and Muskoka (District Municipality of Muskoka) districts.

Southern Ontario differs greatly from Northern Ontario, in that it has a larger population, different climate, and different culture than its northern counterpart. It is broken into smaller subregions, including Central Ontario, Eastern Ontario, Southwestern Ontario, and the Golden Horseshoe.
