The Ottawa Swans are an Australian rules football club based in Ottawa, Canada.

The club is notable as being the first and currently only Australian rules football club to represent the city of Ottawa.

The Ottawa Swans Australian Football Club played 3 exhibition games in 2007 before becoming a not-for-profit society in 2008. It entered the Ontario Australian Football League as a member team in 2008, playing home games on a pitch built in the infield of the Rideau Carleton Raceway in Ottawa's south end.

The inaugural team of the Ottawa Swans Australian Football Club was led on the field by Captain Steve Spurrell and coached by Richard Keane, who also played in the majority of games.

The Swans first victory (as part of the Ontario Australian Football League) occurred on the 11th of July, 2009 in the 3rd annual Canada Day Cup. The swans defeated the Guelph Gargoyles 13.8.86 to 3.7.25 at the Rideau Carleton Raceway. It took the Swans 20 games to get their first win (13 losses in the first season and 6 in the second).

The Swans posted the first away victory in round 10 of the 2009 season against the High Park Demons at Humber College North. The final score was 12.6.78 to 3.7.25 .
