Dorchester was a federal electoral district in Quebec, Canada, that was represented in the Canadian House of Commons from 1867 to 1968.

It was created by the British North America Act of 1867 which preserved the existing electoral districts in Lower Canada at the time. In 1966, it was redistributed into the Beauce, Bellechasse and Lévis electoral districts.
