Argenteuil—Papineau—Mirabel (formerly known as Argenteuil, Argenteuil—Papineau and Argenteuil—Deux-Montagnes) is a federal electoral district in Quebec, Canada, that has been represented in the Canadian House of Commons since 1867.

Geography[edit]

Initially, Argenteuil consisted of the Parishes of Saint Andrews, Saint Jérusalem, part of the Parish of St. Jérome, the Townships of Chatham, Wentworth, Grenville and Augmentation, Harrington and Augmentation, Gore, Howard, Arundel, Montcalm Wolfe, Salaberry and Grandisson, and part of the Township of Morin.

In 1882, the townships of Salaberry, Wolfe and Grandison were detached from Argenteuil and annexed to Terrebonne.

In 1924, Argenteuil electoral district was redefined to consist of the County of Argenteuil.

In 1933, Argenteuil electoral district was expanded to include the portion of the County of Two-Mountains lying north of the North River, consisting of the municipality of St-Colomban and the northern part of the municipality of St-Canut.

The electoral district was abolished in 1947 and became part of Argenteuil—Deux-Montagnes.

In 1966, Argenteuil electoral district was re-created, consisting of the City of Deux-Montagnes, the Towns of Barkmere, Lachute, Oka-sur-le-Lac and Saint-Eustache, the Counties of Argenteuil and Deux-Montagnes, and the village municipality of Saint-Sauveur-des-Monts and the parish municipality of Saint-Sauveur in the County of Terrebonne.

The electoral district's name was changed in 1970 to Argenteuil—Deux-Montagnes.

In 1976, the name reverted to Argenteuil when it was slightly redistricted: Deux-Montagnes, Pointe-Calumet and Saint-Joseph-du-Lac became part of a new district, with the rest of Deux-Montagnes county remaining in Argenteuil, while Saint-Sauveur and Saint-Sauveur-des-Monts where transferred to join most of Terrebonne county in Labelle (electoral district). Its name changed in 1980 to Argenteuil—Papineau.

In 1987, it was redefined to consist of the towns of Barkmere, Lachute and Mirabel, the County of Argenteuil, and parts of the Counties of Deux-Montagnes and Papineau.

In 1996, it was redefined to consist of the cities of Barkmere, Lachute, Mirabel and Thurso, the county regional municipalities of Argenteuil, Papineau, and Deux-Montagnes, including Kanesatake Indian Reserve No. 16, excepting the cities of Deux-Montagnes, Saint-Eustache and Sainte-Marthe-sur-le-Lac, the Parish Municipality of Saint-Colomban, the township municipalities of Amherst and Arundel, and the municipalities of Huberdeau, Montcalm, Lac-des-Seize-Îles, Morin-Heights, Saint-Adolphe-d'Howard and Wentworth-Nord.

Argenteuil—Papineau—Mirabel now consists of the City of Mirabel, the regional county municipalities of Argenteuil and Papineau, the municipalities of Oka, Pointe-Calumet, Saint-Joseph-du-Lac and Saint-Placide, including Kanesatake Indian Lands No. 16, and the municipalities of Lac-des-Seize-Îles, Morin-Heights, Saint-Adolphe-d'Howard and Wentworth-Nord.

The neighbouring ridings are Pontiac, Laurentides—Labelle, Rivière-du-Nord, Terrebonne—Blainville, Marc-Aurèle-Fortin, Rivière-des-Mille-Îles, Pierrefonds—Dollard, Lac-Saint-Louis, Vaudreuil-Soulanges, and Glengarry—Prescott—Russell.
