Saint-Léonard—Saint Michel (formerly Saint-Léonard) is a federal electoral district in Quebec, Canada, that has been represented in the House of Commons of Canada since 1988. Its population in 2001 was 102,302.

Geography[edit]

The district includes the Borough of Saint Leonard, and the neighbourhood of Saint-Michel-Nord and the eastern part of the neighbourhood of Saint-Michel in the Borough of Villeray–Saint-Michel–Parc-Extension.

History[edit]

"Saint-Léonard" riding was first created in 1976 from parts of Maisonneuve—Rosemont, Mercier and Saint-Michel ridings. The name of the riding was changed in 1977 to Saint-Léonard—Anjou before an election was held. It consisted of the City of Saint-Léonard, the Town of Anjou, and part of the City of Montreal.

The neighbouring ridings are Rosemont—La Petite-Patrie, Papineau, Ahuntsic, Bourassa, Honoré-Mercier, and Hochelaga.

The current electoral district was created as "Saint-Léonard" riding in 1987 from parts of Gamelin and Saint-Léonard—Anjou ridings. In 1996, its name was changed to "Saint-Léonard—Saint-Michel".
