Ottawa West—Nepean is a provincial electoral district in eastern Ontario, Canada. It elects one member to the Legislative Assembly of Ontario.
The riding is fairly solidly Liberal. In the 1999 provincial election, however, former Member of Provincial Parliament Alex Cullen lost the nomination to Rick Chiarelli following fierce party battles. Cullen moved to the Ontario New Democratic Party NDP and split the Liberal vote, making Tory Garry Guzzo the surprise victor. In the 2003 provincial election, former Ottawa mayor Jim Watson ousted Guzzo.
