Quebec East (also known as Québec-Est and Québec East) was a federal electoral district in Quebec, Canada, that was represented in the Canadian House of Commons from 1867 to 2004.

While its boundaries changed over the decades, it was essentially made up of the eastern part of Quebec City and was largely of working class composition. It was created in 1867. It was renamed "Québec-Est" in 1966, and "Québec East" in 1996. It was abolished through redistribution 2003 into the ridings of Québec, Louis-Saint-Laurent, and Beauport.

The riding has been represented by a number of notable Members of Parliament (MPs), including Prime Minister Sir Wilfrid Laurier (1877 – 1919), senior Cabinet member Ernest Lapointe (1919 – 1941) and Prime Minister Louis St. Laurent (1942 – 1958).
