Strathcona was a provincial electoral district for the Legislative Assembly of Alberta, Canada. It is not to be confused with Edmonton-Strathcona, a different provincial electoral district within the city of Edmonton created in 1971. or with the federal electoral district Edmonton—Strathcona.
The constituency of Strathcona existed on two occasions in Alberta's history. The first time, the constituency, centred on the City of Strathcona in what is now Edmonton, was carried over from the Strathcona North-West territorial constituency from before Alberta became a province. The constituency disappeared in 1913 when it was split between Vegreville, Camrose and Edmonton South. Strathcona was the home constitiuency of Alberta's first premier, Alexander Rutherford.
The Edmonton-Strathcona constituency, of the 1971 to the present period, was re-created in roughly the same place as the 1905-1909 version, in what had formerly (1959-1967) been Strathcona Centre.
A constituency using just the name Strathcona was created in 2004 when it was carved out of the south portion of Redwater and a large chunk of north west Cloverbar-Fort Saskatchewan.
The constituency of Strathcona was sometimes confused with Edmonton-Strathcona so was renamed Strathcona-Sherwood Park.
The constituency of Strathcona (2004-2012) bordered the east of Edmonton and was mixed rural, semi-rural and suburban, covering Strathcona County.
Fort Saskatchewan-Vegreville bordered the riding to the north and east. Leduc-Beaumont-Devon bordered the riding to the south. Sherwood Park, Edmonton-Ellerslie, Edmonton-Mill Creek, Edmonton-Beverly-Clareview and Edmonton-Manning bordered to the west.

On November 19, 2004 a Student Vote was conducted at participating Alberta schools to parallel the 2004 Alberta general election results. The vote was designed to educate students and simulate the electoral process for persons who have not yet reached the legal majority. The vote was conducted in 80 of the 83 provincial electoral districts with students voting for actual election candidates. Schools with a large student body that reside in another electoral district had the option to vote for candidates outside of the electoral district then where they were physically located.
