Berthier was a federal electoral district in the Canadian province of Quebec that was represented in the House of Commons of Canada from 1867 to 1925.

It was created by the British North America Act, 1867, and was abolished in 1924 when it was merged into Berthier—Maskinongé riding.

A second "Berthier" riding was created in 1966. This riding was renamed Berthier—Maskinongé in 1975. Please see the article on that riding for the history of Berthier during this period.
