Chicoutimi is a provincial electoral district in the Saguenay–Lac-Saint-Jean region of Quebec, Canada that elects members to the National Assembly of Quebec. The district is located within the city of Saguenay and consists of part of the borough of Chicoutimi; it corresponds exactly to the territory of the former city of Chicoutimi prior to its February 18, 2002, amalgamation into the newly formed city of Saguenay.

It was created for the 1912 election from a part of Chicoutimi-Saguenay electoral district.

In the change from the 2001 to the 2012 electoral map, its territory was unchanged.
