Terrebonne—Blainville (formerly known as Terrebonne) is a federal electoral district in Quebec, Canada, that has been represented in the Canadian House of Commons since 1867.

It was created as "Terrebonne" riding by the British North America Act of 1867 which preserved existing electoral districts in Lower Canada

It was renamed "Terrebonne—Blainville" when parts of Blainville—Deux-Montagnes and Repentigny ridings were added to Terrebonne riding.

The riding of Terrebonne was recreated by the 2012 federal electoral boundaries redistribution and is to be legally defined in the 2013 representation order. It is likely to come into effect upon the call of the 42nd Canadian federal election, scheduled for October 2015, although in the unlikely event an election is called prior to April 2014, the current electoral boundaries would remain in effect. The rest of Terrebonne—Blainville will be split into the riding of Blainville.[3]

Geography[edit]

The riding contains the towns of Blainville et Sainte-Anne-des-Plaines in the region of Laurentides, and the town of Terrebonne in Lanaudière.

The neighbouring ridings are Argenteuil—Papineau—Mirabel, Rivière-du-Nord, Montcalm, Alfred-Pellan, and Marc-Aurèle-Fortin.
