Yale-West was a provincial electoral district in the British Columbia legislature that appeared only in the 1894, 1898 and 1900 elections. It and its sister ridings Yale-West and Yale-East were created from the older three-member Yale riding, which was one of the province's first twelve as of 1871. For the 1903 election the riding-name Yale was restored on an adapted version of Yale-West. The area of Yale-West is now part of the riding of Yale-Lillooet.
