Algoma District is a district and census division in Northeastern Ontario in the Canadian province of Ontario. It was created in 1858 comprising territory as far west as Minnesota. Since then, it has shrunk, as other districts were created by the provincial government:

The district seat is Sault Ste. Marie.

The rugged scenery of this region has inspired works by Canadian artists, particularly the Group of Seven, who rented a boxcar from the Algoma Central Railway during excursions through this region.
