Saint-Hyacinthe—Bagot (formerly known as Saint-Hyacinthe) is a federal electoral district that has been represented in the Canadian House of Commons since 1935. It is located in Quebec, Canada. Its population in 2006 was 95,983.

Geography[edit]

The district includes the Regional County Municipalities of Acton and Les Maskoutains. It includes the communities of Saint-Hyacinthe, Acton Vale, Saint-Pie, Sainte-Madeleine, and Saint-Dominique.

Political geography[edit]

Almost all of the riding voted for the Bloc in 2006 except for parts of Roxton Falls and its surrounding township, Roxton which voted Conservative.

History[edit]

The electoral district was created in 1933 as "St. Hyacinthe—Bagot". In 1947, the name was changed to "Saint-Hyacinthe—Bagot".

In 1966, the riding was abolished. Parts of the riding were combined with parts of Chambly—Rouville and Richelieu—Verchères riding into a new riding named "Saint-Hyacinthe". Saint-Hyacinthe was renamed "Saint-Hyacinthe—Bagot" after the 1980 election.

2007 by-election[edit]

After the resignation of Yvan Loubier on 21 February 2007, a by-election occurred on 17 September 2007.
