Beloeil—Chambly is a new federal electoral district in Quebec. It encompasses a portion of Quebec formerly included in the electoral district of Chambly—Borduas.[3]

Beloeil—Chambly was created by the 2012 federal electoral boundaries redistribution and was legally defined in the 2013 representation order. It came into effect upon the call of the 42nd Canadian federal election, scheduled for 19 October 2015.[4]

Profile[edit]

The NDP did well against the Bloc in the region in the 2011 election, when results are applied to the new riding's boundaries. There was little variation in support for most parties from one part of the riding to another. In the 2015 federal election, the Bloc saw a slight bump in support, while the Liberals jumped more than 20 percentage points, mostly at the expense of the NDP.
