The Anglican Diocese of Athabasca is a diocese of the Ecclesiastical Province of Rupert's Land of the Anglican Church of Canada, in the northern half of the civil province of Alberta. It was created in 1874 by the division into four parts of the original Diocese of Rupert's Land. The Synod of the Diocese of Athabasca was organized in 1876. The diocese was then itself subdivided in 1892 to create the new dioceses of Selkirk (later renamed Yukon) and Mackenzie River and in 1933 to create the Diocese of The Arctic (which subsumed Mackenzie River).

The see city is Peace River. The diocese has had at least two other See Cities: Fort Simpson and Fort Vermilion. The bishop resided for a considerable period at Athabasca Landing, but it is not certain whether it was ever his "seat". Other cities in the diocese are Grande Prairie and Fort McMurray.

The diocesan bishop is Fraser Lawton, formerly rector of St Thomas' Anglican church in Fort McMurray, Alberta, who was elected 11th Bishop of Athabasca by the Diocesan Synod on 19 September 2009 and consecrated and installed on 22 November 2009 in St James' Cathedral, Peace River.
