The Ottawa Sun is a daily tabloid newspaper in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. It is published by Sun Media. It was first published in the early 1980s as the Ottawa Sunday Herald, until it was acquired by (then) Toronto Sun Publishing Corporation in 1988.

The first Sunday edition of the newly named Ottawa Sun was published on September 4, 1988 and the first daily edition appeared on November 7, 1988. As with its sister papers, it has a "Sunshine Girl" feature, although in the past it also contained a "Sunshine Boy" feature.

Its editorials are conservative-leaning, and it makes use of editorialized headlines.

It is popular especially among commuters because its daily version (Monday-Friday) is 25 cents. It is also distributed in outlying areas for one dollar, both on weekdays and weekends.

Past editors include Peter Worthington and Mark Bonokoski.
