Montreal West (French: Montréal-Ouest) is an on-island suburb in southwestern Quebec, Canada on the Island of Montreal.

Montreal West is a small, close-knit community made up primarily of single-family dwellings. The town is largely composed of young families, and has a total population of 5,184, as of the 2006 census. The town's area is 1.6 km². About 66% of the population of Montreal West speak English as their first language.

The core business area of Montreal West is located on Westminster Avenue between Milner and Curzon. Until recently, it consisted exclusively of small, non-franchised businesses, but in a controversial decision, the Pharmaprix drugstore chain was allowed to open a large outlet on the corner of Westminster and Sherbrooke Street.

On January 1, 2002, as part of the 2002–2006 municipal reorganization in Montreal, Montreal West and the neighboring suburbs of Côte-Saint-Luc and Hampstead were merged into the City of Montreal and became the borough of Côte-Saint-Luc–Hampstead–Montreal West. Following a change of government and a 2004 referendum in which the population voted to de-merge by a wide margin, Montreal West was reconstituted as an independent city on January 1, 2006.
