Charlotte L'Écuyer (born August 16, 1943, in Smooth Rock Falls, Ontario) is a politician in Quebec, Canada. She is the current Member of the National Assembly of Quebec (MNA) for the riding of Pontiac in Western Quebec and a member of the Quebec Liberal Party caucus.

She went to the Université du Québec à Hull (now Université du Québec en Outaouais) and obtained a bachelor's degree in social work. She would later add a master's degree in social work at the Université de Sherbrooke.

L'Écuyer was a social worker and the former general manager of the Pontiac's CLSC clinic. She was also an administration member for several health and social services associations in the Pontiac region. She was also an administration member to the Centre local de développement de la MRC du Pontiac.

L'Écuyer won her first election in the 2003 election replacing Robert Middlemiss who detained the seat for several years. After the departure of Chambly MNA Diane Legault, L'Écuyer was named the Parliamentary Secretary for Health Minister Philippe Couillard until 2007. During her first term, she was featured in the film Chers électeurs.

During the 2007 election campaign, while the Outaouais region has in a midst of a severe doctor shortage, she mentioned in an interview with local media reporters that not everyone in the region needs a family doctor.

Despite losing 18% of the popular vote from the last election she won a second term ahead of Parti Québécois candidate Patrick Robert-Meunier and the Action democratique du Quebec's (ADQ) Victor Bilodeau.
