Members by Senate division[edit]

The boundaries for all Quebec districts are mandated in the Constitution Act 1867 and cannot change without a constitutional amendment. The boundaries are described in the 1859 Consolidated Statutes of Canada.

Self-designated Senate divisions can be used by senators appointed under the Regional Expansion Clause Section 26 of the Constitution Act 1867. This clause can be used to increase the Senate seats by one or two senators for each region (Ontario, Quebec, the Maritimes and the Western Provinces). Prime Minister Brian Mulroney is the only one to use this clause, on September 27, 1990.
