Témiscouata (also known as Rivière-du-Loup—Témiscouata) was a federal electoral district in Quebec, Canada, that was represented in the Canadian House of Commons from 1867 to 1979.

It was created as "Témiscouata" riding by the British North America Act of 1867. In 1959, it was renamed "Rivière-du-Loup—Témiscouata" and defined to consist of:

  • the county of Témiscouata;
  • the county of Rivière-du-Loup (except the parish municipalities of Notre-Dame-du-Portage and Sainte-Françoise and the municipalities of Saint-Jean-de-Dieu and Trois Pistoles) and the city of Rivière-du-Loup.

In 1966, it was redivided into the ridings of Kamouraska and Témiscouata. The new Témiscouata riding consisted of:

  • the City of Rivière-du-Loup;
  • the Towns of Cabano and Trois-Pistoles;
  • the County of Rivière-du-Loup (except the parish municipalities of Notre-Dame-du-Portage and Saint-Antonin);
  • parts of the County of Témiscouata; and
  • parts of the County of Rimouski.

The riding was again renamed "Rivière-du-Loup—Témiscouata" in 1972.

Rivière-du-Loup—Témiscouata was abolished in 1976 when it was redistributed into the ridings of Kamouraska—Rivière-du-Loup and Rimouski.
