Montmorency—Charlevoix—Haute-Côte-Nord (formerly known as Charlevoix—Montmorency) is a federal electoral district in Quebec, Canada, that has been represented in the House of Commons of Canada since 2004. An earlier Charlevoix—Montmorency riding was represented in the House of Commons from 1917 to 1925.

As of the next election, the riding will be known as Beauport—Côte-de-Beaupré—Île d'Orléans—Charlevoix,[3] with the eastern part of the riding becoming a part of the neighboring riding Manicouagan.

Geography[edit]

The riding, which extends along the north bank of the Saint Lawrence River northeast of Quebec City on either side of the Saguenay River, straddles the Quebec regions of Capitale-Nationale and Côte-Nord. It consists of the MRCs of Charlevoix, Charlevoix-Est, La Côte-de-Beaupré, L'Île-d'Orléans, and La Haute-Côte-Nord, as well as a neighbourhood of southeastern Quebec City.

The neighbouring ridings are Beauport—Limoilou, Portneuf—Jacques-Cartier, Saint-Maurice—Champlain, Roberval—Lac-Saint-Jean, Chicoutimi—Le Fjord, Manicouagan, Haute-Gaspésie—La Mitis—Matane—Matapédia, Rimouski-Neigette—Témiscouata—Les Basques, Montmagny—L'Islet—Kamouraska—Rivière-du-Loup, and Lévis—Bellechasse.

History[edit]

It was created in 2003 as "Charlevoix—Montmorency" from parts of Beauport—Montmorency—Côte-de-Beaupré—Île-d'Orléans, Charlesbourg—Jacques-Cartier and Charlevoix ridings. Its name was changed to "Montmorency—Charlevoix—Haute-Côte-Nord" after the 2004 election.

The riding of Charlevoix—Montmorency also existed from 1914 to 1924. from parts of Charlevoix, Chicoutimi—Saguenay and Montmorency ridings.

It initially consisted of the parishes of St. Tite, St. Féréol, St. Joachim, Château Richer, Ste. Anne and the village of Ste. Anne.

The electoral district was abolished in 1924 when it was redistributed into Charlevoix—Saguenay and Quebec—Montmorency ridings. Its only Member of Parliament was Pierre-François Casgrain of the Liberal Party of Canada.
