Labelle was a federal electoral district in Quebec, Canada, that was represented in the Canadian House of Commons from 1896 to 1988.

This riding was created in 1892 from parts of the County of Ottawa riding.

The electoral district was abolished in 1987 when it was redistributed into the new riding of Laurentides and the existing riding of Pontiac—Gatineau—Labelle.

The district's most prominent MP was Quebec nationalist Henri Bourassa.
