Nelligan is a provincial electoral district in the Montreal region of Quebec, Canada that elects members to the National Assembly of Quebec. It comprises most of the Pierrefonds-Roxboro borough and all of the L'Île-Bizard–Sainte-Geneviève borough of Montreal, and the city of Kirkland.

It was created for the 1981 election from parts of Pointe-Claire and Robert-Baldwin electoral districts.

In the change from the 2001 to the 2011 electoral map, it lost Senneville to the Jacques-Cartier electoral district but gained from it the part of Kirkland that it did not already have. It also lost a small part of Pierrefonds-Roxboro to the Robert-Baldwin electoral district.

It was named after a Quebec poet, Émile Nelligan.
