Kamouraska was a federal electoral district in Quebec, Canada, that was represented in the Canadian House of Commons from 1869 to 1979. It was created by the British North America Act of 1867. There was no election in 1867 due to riots. There was a by-election held in 1869 in its place. The district was abolished in 1976 when it was redistributed into Bellechasse, Kamouraska—Rivière-du-Loup and Rimouski ridings.
