Drummond is a former provincial electoral riding in the Centre-du-Québec region of Quebec, Canada, which elected members to the National Assembly of Quebec. As of its final election, it consisted of most of the city of Drummondville and all of Saint-Edmond-de-Grantham, Saint-Eugène, Saint-Germain-de-Grantham and Saint-Majorique-de-Grantham.

It was created for the 1890 election from parts of the former Drummond-Arthabaska electoral district. Its final election was in 2008. It disappeared in the 2012 election and its successor electoral districts were Drummond–Bois-Francs and Johnson.[3]

The riding as well as the city of Drummondville were named in honor of former War of 1812 general Gordon Drummond.[4]
