Villeneuve was a federal electoral district in Quebec, Canada, that was represented in the Canadian House of Commons from 1949 to 1979.

This riding was created in 1947 from parts of Pontiac riding. It consisted initially of:

  • the southwestern part of the county of Abitibi; and
  • parts of the county of Témiscamingue including the towns of Mercier, Noranda and Rouyn.

In 1952, it was redefined to consist of:

  • parts of the county of Abitibi including the towns of Bourlamarque, Cadillac, Duparquet, Malartic and Val-d'Or;
  • the northern parts of the county of Témiscamingue including the cities of Noranda and Rouyn.

In 1966, it was redefined to consist of:

  • the Towns of Barville, Bourlamaque, Cadillac, Chapais, Chibougamau, Lebel-sur-Quévillon, Malartic, Senneterre and Val-d'Or;
  • parts of the County of Abitibi; and
  • parts of the County of Témiscamingue.

The electoral district was abolished in 1976 when it was redistributed into Abitibi and Témiscamingue ridings.
