Saint-Jean—Iberville—Napierville was a federal electoral district in the province of Quebec, Canada, that was represented in the Canadian House of Commons from 1949 to 1968.

This riding was created in 1947 from parts of Beauharnois—Laprairie and St. Johns—Iberville—Napierville ridings. It consisted of:

  • the county of Iberville and the town of Iberville;
  • the county of Napierville;

It was abolished in 1966 when it was redistributed into Missisquoi and Saint-Jean ridings.
