Saint-Maurice—Laflèche (previously known as St-Maurice—Laflèche) was a federal electoral district in Quebec, Canada, that was represented in the Canadian House of Commons from 1935 to 1968.

It was created as "St-Maurice—Laflèche" riding in 1933 from parts of Champlain and Three Rivers and St. Maurice ridings. In 1947, the riding's English name was changed to "Saint-Maurice—Laflèche". The electoral district was abolished in 1966 when it was redistributed into Berthier, Champlain and Saint-Maurice ridings.
