Turtleford was a provincial electoral district for the Legislative Assembly of the province of Saskatchewan, Canada, centered on the town of Turtleford.

Created before the 4th Saskatchewan general election in 1917, this constituency was dissolved and combined with the Cut Knife district (as "Battleford-Cut Knife") before the 23rd Saskatchewan general election in 1995. It is now part of the ridings of Cut Knife-Turtleford and Rosthern-Shellbrook.
