Laval West (French: Laval-Ouest; formerly known as Mille-Îles and Laval) was a federal electoral district in Quebec, Canada, that was represented in the Canadian House of Commons from 1979 to 2004.

It was created as the riding of "Mille-Îles" in 1976 from parts of Laval riding. It was renamed "Laval" in 1977, and "Laval West" in 1990.

In 2003, the riding was abolished when it was redistributed into Laval and Laval—Les Îles ridings.
