Political geography[edit]

The Liberals have their strongest support in NDG, but also have a lot of support in most of Lachine and Dorval. The Conservatives failed to win any polls, but were the strongest in Lachine and Dorval. The Bloc, despite finishing third in 2008, was very strong in eastern Lachine including Ville Saint-Pierre. The riding was won by the NDP in its 2011 sweep of the province.

History[edit]

The electoral district of "Lachine—Notre-Dame-de-Grâce" was created in 1996 from parts of Lachine—Lac-Saint-Louis and Notre-Dame-de-Grâce ridings. The name was changed to Notre-Dame-de-Grâce—Lachine in 1997 before the 1997 election was held.
