Lévis—Bellechasse, is a federal electoral district in Quebec, Canada, that has been represented in the Canadian House of Commons since 2004. It was created in 2003 from Lévis-et-Chutes-de-la-Chaudière and Bellechasse—Etchemins—Montmagny—L'Islet ridings.

Geography[edit]

The riding is located south of Quebec City and covers a strip of land between the city's cross-river suburbs and the American border. It is located in the Quebec region of Chaudière-Appalaches. It consists of the RCM of Bellechasse and most of Les Etchemins, as well as the eastern part of the city of Lévis.

The neighbouring ridings are Beauce, Lotbinière—Chutes-de-la-Chaudière, Louis-Hébert, Québec, Beauport—Limoilou, Montmorency—Charlevoix—Haute-Côte-Nord, and Montmagny—L'Islet—Kamouraska—Rivière-du-Loup.

The 2012 federal electoral distribution has concluded this riding will retain its current boundaries, but will be renamed Bellechasse—Les Etchemins—Lévis.
