Charlotte West was a provincial electoral district for the Legislative Assembly of New Brunswick, Canada; it existed from 1974 to 1995.

It was created from part of the former four-member electoral district of Charlotte during the New Brunswick electoral redistribution of 1973. In the New Brunswick electoral redistribution of 1994, parts of Charlotte West were merged with St. Stephen-Milltown to form the new electoral division of Western Charlotte; the remainder became part of the new electoral district of Fundy Isles.
