Nee Soon Group Representation Constituency (Chinese: 义顺集选区; Malay: Kawasan Undi Perwakilan Berkumpulan Nee Soon; Tamil: நீ சூன் குழுத் தொகுதி) is a five-member Group Representation Constituency (GRC) in the north region of Singapore. The GRC includes most of Yishun town, the private residential areas along Sembawang Road, the southern part of Sembawang, and most of the Kebun Baru district of Ang Mo Kio.

The GRC was formed during the 2011 election, absorbing former Nee Soon Central SMC, Nee Soon East SMC and 2 divisions from Sembawang GRC (Canberra and Chong Pang Division) and a division from Ang Mo Kio GRC (Nee Soon South). In 2015, Canberra, Simpang, Gambas, Sembawang town and parts of Yishun returned to Sembawang GRC and the GRC had absorbed most of Kebun Baru from Ang Mo Kio GRC.

Nee Soon GRC is currently led by Law and Home Affairs Minister K Shanmugam.
