Witnesses have told local media the front end of the double-decker bus was ripped off in the accident, which happened at a rail crossing during the morning commute.
Police in the city have said "multiple" people have been killed and many have been injured in the crash in Ottawa's west end.
Emergency services are at the scene of the mangled wreckage of the double-decker bus just outside a suburban train station.
Witnesses said that the bus seemed to ignore warning signals at a level-crossing.
The train firm, Via Rail, reported no major injuries on its train.
