West Coast Group Representation Constituency (西海岸集选区; Kawasan Undi Perwakilan Berkumpulan West Coast; வெஸ்ட் கோஸ்ட் குழுத்தொகுதி) is a four-member Group Representation Constituency located in the western area of Singapore. The GRC is divided into four divisions and is a constituency held by the People's Action Party. The four divisions are Ayer Rajah, West Coast, Boon Lay, and Telok Blangah. West Coast GRC covers the areas of Ayer Rajah, Dover, Pasir Panjang, the south-western area, West Coast, Jurong, Jurong Island, Sentosa, Telok Blangah, Tuas and much of Singapore's southern & western territorial waters of the country.

Formed in 1997, West Coast GRC is led by Minister for Trade and Industry(Industry) S Iswaran. The constituency faced a contest against the Workers' Party in the 1997 general election. Since then, the constituency has received walkovers in the 2001 and 2006 general elections.

The constituency was a four-member GRC in 1997 and was expanded to five, when it was expanded to include the areas of the now defunct Boon Lay Single Member Constituency and the Jurong area of Bukit Timah Group Representation Constituency. In 2006, West Coast again absorbed Ayer Rajah Single Member Constituency and merged with Minister of State's S Iswaran's West Coast seat to form the Ayer Rajah-West Coast division. Cedric Foo's Pioneer ward was crafted out a single member constituency after the 2011 election.

Five candidates of the Reform Party of Singapore, including Kenneth Jeyaretnam, have challenged the People's Action Party incumbents in this GRC for the first time in the General Election 2011.

In 2015, West Coast GRC was downsized to four members, and it was contested again by candidates from the Reform Party during the 2015 general election.

West Coast GRC's capital and town council head office are located at Clementi.
