Papineau is a federal electoral district in Quebec, Canada, that has been represented in the House of Commons of Canada from 1948 to 1988 and since 2004. Its population in 2006 was 101,019. Liberal Party leader Justin Trudeau has represented the riding since securing it in the 2008 federal election.

The name of the riding comes from a street in Villeray named after Joseph Papineau.

At nine square kilometres, it covers the smallest area of any federal riding in Canada.[3] As of the 2006 census, this riding had the lowest average family income in Canada.[citation needed] Linguistically, 45% of residents list French as their mother tongue, 8% list English, and 47% list neither English nor French, with large groups speaking Spanish, Italian, Greek and Arabic. The total immigrant population is 40 per cent.[4]

Geography[edit]

The district includes the neighbourhoods of Villeray and Park Extension, and the western part of the neighbourhood of Saint-Michel in the Borough of Villeray–Saint-Michel–Parc-Extension.

Political geography[edit]

Papineau, despite its small size, is a very divided riding. The riding spans the linguistic divide of the city, Saint Laurent Boulevard. South of the riding is the neighbourhood of Park Extension, which is very Liberal. The central part of the riding, around Villeray, tends to support the Bloc strongly. The neighbourhood of Saint-Michel, to its north, leans to the Liberals.[citation needed]

Except for the years 2006 to 2008, when it was held by Vivian Barbot of the Bloc Québécois, the seat has been in Liberal hands since 1953.

History[edit]

The electoral district of Papineau was created in 1947 from parts of the Hochelaga, Mercier, St. James and Saint-Denis ridings.

The riding was abolished in 1987 when it was redistributed between the Papineau—Saint-Michel, Rosemont and Saint-Denis ridings.

In 2003, a new "Papineau" riding was created from parts of the Papineau—Saint-Michel riding.
