The High Commission of the United Kingdom in Ottawa is the main diplomatic mission of the United Kingdom in Canada. It is located at 80 Elgin Street in downtown Ottawa, across the street from the National Arts Centre and not far from Parliament Hill. The current building was opened in 1964.

Evans had replaced the previous High Commissioner, David Reddaway, in August 2006. The UK has Consulates-General in Toronto, Montreal, and Vancouver. It has Honorary Consuls in St. John's, Halifax, Quebec City, and Winnipeg. There is also a trade office in Calgary. The High Commission also represents the British Overseas Territories in Canada. The High Commissioner resides at Earnscliffe, a manor on the Ottawa River.
