Marc-Aurèle-Fortin is a federal electoral district in Quebec, Canada, that has been represented in the House of Commons of Canada since 2004.

Geography[edit]

The district includes the neighbourhoods of Auteuil and Sainte-Rose, the eastern part of the neighbourhood of Fabreville, and the western part of neighbourhood of Vimont in the City of Laval. The neighbouring ridings are Rivière-des-Mille-Îles, Argenteuil—Papineau—Mirabel, Terrebonne—Blainville, Alfred-Pellan, and Vimy.

History[edit]

The district was created in 2004 from Laval Centre, Terrebonne—Blainville, Laval East and Rivière-des-Milles-Îles ridings. It is named in honour of the artist Marc-Aurèle Fortin.

This riding was significantly changed during the 2012 electoral redistribution. It lost territory to Thérèse-De Blainville and Rivière-des-Mille-Îles, and gained territory from Laval, Laval—Les Îles and Alfred-Pellan making the riding entirely within the city of Laval.
