René-Lévesque is a provincial electoral district in the Côte-Nord region of Quebec, Canada, which elects members to the National Assembly of Quebec. It includes the Manicouagan Regional County Municipality and La Haute-Côte-Nord Regional County Municipality, as well as the cities of Baie-Comeau and Forestville.

It was created for the 1948 election under the name Saguenay from part of the former Charlevoix-Saguenay electoral district. The predecessor to Charlevoix-Saguenay (before 1912) was Chicoutimi-Saguenay. Despite its former name, the district has not included the Saguenay–Lac-Saint-Jean region since at least the 1994 election.

It was renamed René-Lévesque for the 2003 election, after former Quebec Premier René Lévesque, although its territory was unchanged.

In the change from the 2001 to the 2011 electoral map, its territory was once again unchanged.
