Niagara West—Glanbrook is a federal electoral district in Ontario, Canada, that has been represented in the Canadian House of Commons since 2004.

The riding was created in 2003 from parts of Ancaster—Dundas—Flamborough—Aldershot, Erie—Lincoln, Hamilton Mountain, Niagara Centre, and Stoney Creek.

It covers part of the city of Hamilton, Grimsby and other towns, and a large rural area.

Specifically, it consists of the towns of Grimsby, Lincoln and Pelham, the Township of West Lincoln, and the part of the City of Hamilton lying east and south of a line drawn from the southern city limit north along Glancaster Road, east along the hydroelectric transmission line situated south of Rymal Road West, north along Glover Road, Anchor Road, Arbour Road and Mountain Brow Boulevard and east along Redhill Creek and the Niagara Escarpment to the eastern city limit.

Following the 2015 redistribution, the portion of the Niagara West-Glanbrook riding within the Niagara Region will form the new riding of Niagara West. The portions of Niagara-West Glanbrook in the City of Hamilton will form part of the new riding of Flamborough—Glanbrook.
