The 2011 boundaries of Charleswood highlighted in red.

Charleswood is a provincial electoral division in the Canadian province of Manitoba. It was created by redistribution in 1968, and has formally existed since the provincial election of 1969. The riding is located in the westernmost tip of the City of Winnipeg.

Charleswood is bordered to the east by Tuxedo and Fort Whyte, to the north by Kirkfield Park, and to the south and west by the rural riding of Morris.

Charleswood's population in 1996 was 20,262. The riding's character is middle and upper-middle class: in 1999, the average family income was $70,417, and the unemployment rate was 5.20%. Eleven per cent of the riding's residents are immigrants, with over half being of German origin.

The service sector accounts for 15% of Charleswood's industry, with a further 12% in the retail trade and 11% in health and social sciences.

The riding has been represented by members of the Progressive Conservative Party since its creation, and is considered safe for the party. The current MLA is Myrna Driedger, who is considered to be the most centrist member of her party's parliamentary caucus.
