Laval is a federal electoral district in Quebec, Canada, that has been represented in the Canadian House of Commons from 1867 to 1917, 1949 to 1979, and since 2004. Its population in 2001 was 98,831.

Geography[edit]

The district includes the neighbourhoods of Chomedey, Laval-des-Rapides and Fabreville in the City of Laval. The neighbouring ridings are Papineau, Saint-Laurent—Cartierville, Laval—Les Îles, Rivière-des-Mille-Îles, Marc-Aurèle-Fortin, and Alfred-Pellan.

History[edit]

The electoral district of Laval was created in 1867 covering the entire County of Laval (now the City of Laval). In 1914, Laval riding was abolished. The district of Laval—Two Mountains was created from Laval and Two Mountains.

In 1947, the new district of Laval was created from Laval—Two Mountains and Mercier. In 1976, riding was abolished when it was redistributed into Laval-des-Rapides and Mille-Îles ridings.

In 1977, a new Laval riding was created. In 1990, it was renamed Laval West.

In 2003, a new Laval riding was created from Laval Centre and Laval West ridings.
