Chicoutimi—Le Fjord (formerly known as Chicoutimi) is a federal electoral district in Quebec, Canada, that has been represented in the House of Commons of Canada since 1925.

It was created as "Chicoutimi" riding in 1924 from Chicoutimi—Saguenay. It was renamed "Chicoutimi—Le Fjord" in 2000.

The neighbouring ridings are Abitibi—Baie-James—Nunavik—Eeyou, Manicouagan, Montmorency—Charlevoix—Haute-Côte-Nord, Roberval—Lac-Saint-Jean, and Jonquière—Alma.

Geography[edit]

The riding consisted of Chicoutimi County until 1947, when it shrank somewhat, but has always been centred on the city of Chicoutimi, Quebec.
