The Brantford and Hamilton Electric Railway was an interurban electrified railway in the Hamilton, Ontario area of Canada. Construction was begun by the Von Echa syndicate of Harrisburg, but the railway was taken over by Dominion Power prior to its completion on 1908-06-01. According to "Hilton & Due", this was the last interurban constructed in the Hamilton area and the only one built to a high standard. [Hilton Interurbans]

The line gave an hourly service between Brantford and Hamilton. Freight traffic was negligible.

The railway passed, along with all Dominion Power's assets, to the Ontario Hydroelectric Power Commission in 1930. All service was abandoned in 1931-06-30.
