Toronto Northwest was a federal electoral district represented in the House of Commons of Canada from 1925 to 1935. It was located in the city of Toronto in the province of Ontario. This riding was created in 1924 from parts of Parkdale, Toronto North and York South ridings.

It consisted of the part of the city of Toronto north of Bloor Street, west of Bathurst St. and east of the Northern Division of the Canadian National Railway, the main line of the Canadian Pacific Railway eastward and Landsdowne Avenue.

The electoral district was abolished in 1933 when it was redistributed between Davenport, Spadina, Trinity and York West ridings.
