Esquimalt—Saanich was a federal electoral district in British Columbia, Canada, that was represented in the Canadian House of Commons from 1953 to 1988.

This riding was created in 1952 from parts of Nanaimo riding.

It was abolished in 1987 when it was redistributed into Esquimalt—Juan de Fuca and Saanich—Gulf Islands ridings.

It consisted of the southern part of Vancouver Island and off-shore islands.
