Verchères—Les Patriotes (formerly Verchères) is a federal electoral district in Quebec, Canada, that has been represented in the House of Commons of Canada since 1979.

Geography[edit]

The riding runs along the Saint Lawrence River east of Montreal, in the Quebec region of Montérégie. It consists of the Marguerite-D'Youville Regional County Municipality, the northern part of the La Vallée-du-Richelieu Regional County Municipality, and the eastern part of the city of Boucherville.

The neighbouring ridings are Bas-Richelieu—Nicolet—Bécancour, Saint-Hyacinthe—Bagot, Chambly—Borduas, Saint-Bruno—Saint-Hubert, Longueuil—Pierre-Boucher, La Pointe-de-l'Île, Repentigny and Berthier—Maskinongé.

History[edit]

Verchères riding was created by the British North America Act in 1867. In 1893, it was merged into Chambly—Verchères.

In 1976, the riding of "Verchères" was recreated from parts of Chambly and St. Hyacinthe ridings. In 1998, it was renamed "Verchères—Les Patriotes".

The district seat was vacant starting from November 9, 2005, when Stéphane Bergeron stepped down to join provincial politics. No by-election was called before the 2006 election was called for January 23, 2006; Bloc candidate Luc Malo won that election.
