Longueuil—Charles-LeMoyne is a federal electoral district in Quebec, Canada, that has been represented in the House of Commons of Canada since 2015. It encompasses a portion of Quebec formerly included in the electoral districts of Saint-Bruno—Saint-Hubert and Saint-Lambert.[2]

Longueuil—Charles-LeMoyne 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]

The riding was originally intended to be named LeMoyne.[4]

Profile[edit]

Longueuil—Charles-Lemoyne broke heavily for the NDP in the 2011 federal election. In certain areas of the riding that were part of the old Saint-Lambert electoral district, such as Greenfield Park with a strong Anglophone minority as well as right by the riverfront, the Bloc Québécois did poorly. However, some parts of Old Longueuil and former parts of the Saint-Bruno—Saint-Hubert riding were friendlier for the BQ. The Liberals' strength was mostly in Greenfield Park while the NDP performed well in all parts of the new riding in the last election.
