Waterloo North was a provincial electoral district represented in the Legislative Assembly of Ontario from Confederation in 1867 until 1999.

It was abolished in 1999 when provincial ridings were defined to have the same borders as federal ridings. Most of its area lies within the boundaries of the current riding of Kitchener—Waterloo.
