Victoria was a historical Alberta Provincial Electoral District. The riding was created in 1905 when Alberta became a province, and existed central north east part of the province.

In 1909 the riding had a significant shift west in the boundaries, moving into Sturgeon, this led to the creation of the Pakan electoral district.

The riding disappeared in 1940 when the north half was split into Redwater and the south have merged with Whitford to create Willingdon.

The riding used Single Transferable Vote in 1926, and elected members under First Past the Post every other year, during its existence.
