Carleton—Charlotte was a federal electoral district in New Brunswick, Canada, that was represented in the Canadian House of Commons from 1968 to 1997.

The riding was created in the redistribution of electoral districts in 1966. It consisted of the counties of Carleton and Charlotte, as well as southern portions of York and Sunbury Counties. Charlotte County was formerly its own electoral district, while Carleton County was part of the Victoria—Carleton riding.

In the 1996 redistribution, Carleton—Charlotte was abolished. Most of Carleton County became part of the new Tobique—Mactaquac, while the rest became part of New Brunswick Southwest.
