Charley M. Thomas (born April 4, 1986 in Victoria, British Columbia) is a Canadian curler from Didsbury, Alberta who currently skips his own rink out of Calgary.

Thomas started his career with an Alberta Provincial Junior title in 2004 and made his debut on the national and international curling scene representing Alberta and winning the 2006 Canadian Junior Curling Championships (Thunder Bay, Ontario) and 2006 World Junior Curling Championships (Jeonju, Korea). Thomas and team also qualified for the 2007 Canadian Junior Curling Championships by winning the 2007 Alberta Junior Provincials at the Granite Curling Club in Edmonton, Alberta. He went on to win his second straight Canadian Junior title over Brett Gallant's rink from Prince Edward Island, as well as a consecutive World Junior title by defeating Niklas Edin of Sweden.

After juniors, Thomas skipped his own team before teaming up with Chris Schille in 2008, throwing fourth stones for the team. Thomas played one season with Schille. Thomas returned to skipping between 2010 and 2014, and joined the Virtue rink for the 2014-15 season.

Thomas and teammate Kalynn Park won the 2015 Canadian Mixed Doubles Curling Trials and represented Canada at the 2015 World Mixed Doubles Curling Championship to a 4th-place finish.

Thomas returned as a skip for the 2015-16 curling season, playing in two Grand Slam of Curling events that season.
