Westside-Kelowna is a provincial electoral district in British Columbia, Canada established by the Electoral Districts Act, 2008. It was first contested in the ensuing election. The riding was created out of parts of Okanagan-Westside, Kelowna-Lake Country and Kelowna-Mission.

Just weeks after the 2013 British Columbia election, newly re-elected MLA Ben Stewart resigned to allow Premier Christy Clark, who had lost her own seat, to run in a by-election.[1]
