The District of Highlands (locally known as "The Highlands") is a municipal district on the Saanich Peninsula, near Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. As one of the Western Communities or West Shore municipalities outside Victoria, Highlands has a population of 1,903 as of 2006. The region stretches along the Saanich Inlet shoreline from north of Goldstream to Mackenzie Bight. One of the more undeveloped areas of the Greater Victoria region, it is one of the newest municipalities created within Capital Regional District.

Although the area is seen as a target for residential expansion of the Greater Victoria region, it remains best known for lakes, hills, and wilderness. It is home to many parks, notably large portions of Gowlland Tod Provincial Park and Mount Work Regional Park.
