Highway 15 is a provincially-maintained highway in southeastern Ontariomarker, Canadamarker.Highway 15 currently runs between Kingstonmarker at the Highway 401 interchange and Highway 7 in Carleton Placemarker. The total length of Highway 15 is .

Highway 15 travels through the following municipalities: Kingstonmarker, Joycevillemarker, Seeleys Bay, Elginmarker, Crosbymarker, Portland, Lombardymarker, Beckwithmarker, Smiths Fallsmarker, Franktownmarker, Black's Corners and Carleton Placemarker.

Highway 15 travels through the following counties: Frontenac, Leeds/Grenville and Lanark. While the southern section has changed little, Highway 15 has followed several different routings through Lanark County in its history.

Originally, the route followed what became Highway 43 (now Lanark County Road 43) to Perthmarker then along what is now Highway 7 towards Carleton Place and eventually Ottawamarker. In 1961, Highway 15 was moved onto its current alignment from Smiths Falls to Carleton Place concurrent with Highway 29 (which continued north to Arnprior), and continued east to Ottawa as part of a concurrency with Highway 7. The next change took place in 1983, when Highway 29 was truncated to Smiths Falls and Highway 15 on its own assumed the routing (eliminating both concurrencies with 7 and 29).

Prior to 1998, the road's southern terminus was at Highway 2, east of downtown Kingston (at CFB Kingstonmarker), while the northern terminus reached Arnpriormarker. Today, the Carleton Place to Arnprior segment is Lanark County Road 29, which matches the route's original (pre-1983) MTO route number.
