Queen's was a federal electoral district in Prince Edward Island, Canada, that was represented in the Canadian House of Commons from 1904 to 1968.

This riding was created in 1903 from parts of East Prince, East Queen's and West Queen's ridings.

It was abolished in 1966 when it was redistributed into Cardigan, Hillsborough and Malpeque ridings.

It consisted of the County of Queen's and elected two members. In 1914, it was redefined to elect only one member unless the British North America Act, 1867, were amended to entitle the province of Prince Edward Island to four members. When that happened, Queen's again was entitled to elect two members until it was abolished in 1966.
