Charlesbourg—Haute-Saint-Charles (formerly Charlesbourg and Charlesbourg—Jacques Cartier) is a federal electoral district in Quebec, Canada, that has been represented in the House of Commons of Canada since 1979.

Geography[edit]

The riding, in the Quebec region of Capitale-Nationale, consists of the northeast part of Quebec City, including the borough of Charlesbourg and the eastern portion of La Haute-Saint-Charles (Saint-Émile and Lac-Saint-Charles).

The neighbouring ridings are Québec, Louis-Saint-Laurent, Portneuf—Jacques-Cartier, and Beauport—Limoilou.

History[edit]

Charlesbourg was created in 1976 from parts of Portneuf and Montmorency. It was renamed Charlesbourg—Jacques-Cartier in 2000 and abolished in 2003, at which point a new Charlesbourg riding was created. After the federal election in 2004, it was renamed Charlesbourg—Haute-Saint-Charles.

The riding gained a small fraction of territory from Louis-Saint-Laurent from the 2012 electoral redistribution.
