Lotbinière—Chutes-de-la-Chaudière is a federal electoral district in the province of Quebec, Canada, that has been represented in the Canadian House of Commons since 2004.

It was created in 2003 from parts of Lévis-et-Chutes-de-la-Chaudière and Lotbinière—L'Érable ridings.

Geography[edit]

Located southwest of Quebec City along the Saint Lawrence River, the riding includes parts of the city's south shore suburbs.

It consists of:

  • the Regional County Municipality of Lotbinière;
  • the part of the City of Lévis comprising: the former cities of Saint-Nicolas, Charny, Saint-Jean-Chrysostome and Saint-Rédempteur, the former Municipality of Saint-Étienne-de-Lauzon, and the former Parish Municipality of Sainte-Hélène-de-Breakeyville; and
