Châteauguay—Lacolle is a federal electoral district in Quebec. It encompasses a portion of Quebec formerly included in the electoral districts of Beauharnois—Salaberry and Châteauguay—Saint-Constant.[2]

Châteauguay—Lacolle 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.[3]

Châteauguay—Lacolle was the only riding in Quebec to flip to a different party in the 2021 election.

Profile[edit]

The Liberals are strongest in the more Anglophone city of Chateauguay, while the Bloc garners more support in cities like Mercier, Sainte-Martine Saint-Rémi and Napierville as well as the rural portions of the riding.
