Papineau is a provincial electoral district located in the Outaouais region of Quebec, which elects members to the National Assembly. It includes part of the City of Gatineau, and municipalities such as Val-des-Bois, Thurso, Papineauville, Montebello, Ripon and Montpellier.

It was created for the 1923 election from part of Labelle.

In the change from the 2001 to the 2011 electoral map, it lost Val-des-Monts to Gatineau electoral district but gained some territory in the city of Gatineau from Chapleau electoral district.

The riding was named after Louis-Joseph Papineau, Canadian politician and leader of the Quebec Patriotes in the 19th century.
