Joliette—L'Assomption—Montcalm was a federal electoral district in Quebec, Canada, that was represented in the Canadian House of Commons from 1935 to 1968.

This riding was created in 1933 from parts of Joliette and L'Assomption—Montcalm ridings.

It was initially defined to consist of:

  • the county of Joliette including the city of Joliette;
  • the county of L'Assomption; and
  • the county of Montcalm, except the township of Archambault.

In 1947, it was redefined to consist of:

  • the county of L'Assomption and the towns of L'Assomption and Laurentides;
  • the county of Montcalm, except the townships of Brunet, Nantel and Pérodeau and the township of Archambault.
