Redberry was a provincial electoral district for the Legislative Assembly of the province of Saskatchewan, Canada, centered on the town of Hafford. This constituency was one of 25 created before the 1st Saskatchewan general election in 1905. Dissolved in 1934, the district was reconstituted before the 9th Saskatchewan general election in 1938, and renamed "Redberry Lake" in 1995.

It is now part of the constituencies of Biggar and Rosthern-Shellbrook.
