Montarville is a federal electoral district in the Montérégie region of Quebec, Canada, that has been represented in the House of Commons of Canada since 2015.

Montarville 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.[2] It was created out of parts of the electoral districts of Saint-Bruno—Saint-Hubert, Verchères—Les Patriotes and Chambly—Borduas.[3]


As in most ridings that succumbed to the Orange Crush, the 2011 results for the new riding of Montarville showed that NDP support was strong throughout. The BQ message sold better in Sainte-Julie and in the portion of Longueuil included in the new riding than it did in Saint-Bruno, with Sainte-Julie being the greatest concentration of support for them. The Liberals' strength comes mainly from the city of Saint-Bruno-de-Montarville, where they did fairly well in comparison to other parts of the riding. Conservative support, which was pretty low, had no real concrete base, being spread evenly across the riding.
