Salaberry—Suroît is a federal electoral district in Quebec. It encompasses a portion of Quebec formerly included in the electoral districts of Beauharnois—Salaberry (76%) and Vaudreuil-Soulanges (24%).[2]

Salaberry—Suroît was created by the 2012 federal electoral boundaries redistribution and was legally defined in the 2013 representation order. It came into effect upon the call of the 42nd Canadian federal election, scheduled for 19 October 2015.[3]

Profile[edit]

In 2011, NDP support was strong in every area of the new district. The Bloc's support was quite strong in Salaberry-de-Valleyfield in comparison to other parts of the riding. Huntington, with its large English-speaking population, had low Bloc support. Otherwise, results were pretty even across the riding for the Bloc. The Conservatives performed strongly along the US border, in Huntington and Ormstown as well as the surrounding rural regions. Liberal voters were far and few between as the Liberals performed badly across the riding, with no particular areas of strength in Salaberry—Suroît.

In 2015, the Liberals saw a massive increase in their vote in the riding, consistent with their strong national showing. They nearly won the riding from the NDP.
