Quebec County (French: Comté de Québec) was a federal electoral district in Quebec, Canada, that was represented in the Canadian House of Commons from 1867 to 1925.

It was created by The British North America Act, 1867 which preserved existing ridings in Lower Canada. It was abolished in 1924 when it was merged into Québec—Montmorency riding.
