Edmonton Mill Woods is an Alberta riding in south Edmonton that runs south from Whitemud Drive to the Anthony Henday and east from Calgary Trail to the Highway 216 border with Strathcona County.

A major upset was caused in this riding during the 2019 federal election when Tory candidate Tim Uppal managed to beat out former cabinet minister Amarjeet Sohi. Uppal garnered more than fifty per cent of the vote, with the Liberal candidate collecting 33.6 per cent.
