Saint-Jérôme is a provincial electoral district in the Laurentides region of Quebec, Canada that elects members to the National Assembly of Quebec. Its territory corresponds exactly to the city of Saint-Jérôme.

It was created for the 2012 election from part of the former Prévost electoral district.[3] The Prévost electoral district consisted solely of the town of Prévost and of the city of Saint-Jérôme. In the change from the 2001 to the 2011 electoral map, the eponymous municipality of Prévost was moved to the Bertrand electoral district; the Prévost electoral district became defunct and the remaining municipality of Saint-Jérôme became a separate new electoral district in its own right, named after itself.

Members of the National Assembly[edit]

  1. Jacques Duchesneau, Coalition Avenir Québec (2012–2014)
  2. Pierre Karl Péladeau, Parti Québécois, (2014-present)
