Montcalm was a provincial electoral district in the Lanaudière region of Quebec, Canada that elected members to the National Assembly of Quebec.

It was created for the 1867 election (and an electoral district of that name existed earlier in the Legislative Assembly of the Province of Canada). Its final election was in 1970. It disappeared in the 1973 election and its successor electoral district was Joliette-Montcalm.

Montcalm was named in honour of Louis-Joseph de Montcalm, a French general who led the French side at the Battle of the Plains of Abraham.
