Bertrand is a provincial electoral district in the Lanaudière and Laurentides regions of Quebec, Canada that elects members to the National Assembly of Quebec. It is not to be confused with the former, entirely different Bertrand electoral district located in the Montérégie region, which existed from 1981 to 1994; they used the same name but otherwise have nothing in common.

It was created for the 1994 election from parts of Labelle, Prévost and Rousseau. It includes the municipalities of Saint-Donat, Chertsey, Saint-Adele, Saint-Sauveur and Saint-Agathe-des-Monts.

In the change from the 2001 to the 2011 electoral map, it lost Chertsey and Saint-Hippolyte to Rousseau electoral district and gained Prévost from Prévost electoral district, which became defunct.

It is named after former Union Nationale and Quebec premier Jean-Jacques Bertrand who was in power from 1968 to 1970 after the death of Daniel Johnson.
