Richelieu was a federal electoral district in Quebec, Canada, that was represented in the Canadian House of Commons from 1867 to 1935.

It was created by the British North America Act, 1867 and was amalgamated into the Richelieu—Verchères electoral district in 1933.

In 1968, a new electoral district was created under the same name which is now known as Bas-Richelieu—Nicolet—Bécancour.
