Melfort was a provincial electoral district for the Legislative Assembly of the province of Saskatchewan, Canada. Created before the 3rd Saskatchewan general election in 1912, this riding was dissolved and combined with the Tisdale district (as Melfort-Tisdale) before the 12th Saskatchewan general election in 1952.

It is now part of a reconstituted Melfort constituency.
