Taschereau is a provincial electoral district in the Capitale-Nationale region of Quebec, Canada that elects members to the National Assembly of Quebec. It consists of part of the La Cité-Limoilou borough of Quebec City and the tiny enclave of Notre-Dame-des-Anges.

It was created for the 1973 election from parts of Jean-Talon and Saint-Sauveur electoral districts.

In the change from the 2001 to the 2011 electoral map, it lost territory to Jean-Lesage and Vanier-Les Rivières but gained territory from Jean-Talon.

The district is named after former Quebec Premier Louis-Alexandre Taschereau who served as premier from 1920 to 1936.
