Bourget is a provincial electoral district in Quebec, Canada that elects members to the National Assembly of Quebec. The district is located within the Mercier–Hochelaga-Maisonneuve borough of Montreal. It includes territory between the boundary with Pointe-aux-Trembles borough and the Canadian National railway and between mostly Sherbrooke Street and the Anjou borough and the Saint Lawrence River.

It was created for the 1960 election from a part of Laval electoral district (not to be confused with the modern-day city of Laval, which was not established until 1965).

In the change from the 2001 to the 2011 electoral map, its territory was unchanged.
