Strathcona was a federal electoral district in the Northwest Territories and Alberta, Canada, that was represented in the House of Commons of Canada from 1904 to 1925. When it was created, it was part of the Northwest Territories. In 1905, when Saskatchewan and Alberta became provinces, it was split between them. In 1907, it fell entirely in Alberta, with the Saskatchewan part being transferred to Battleford riding. It was abolished when it was redistributed between Vegreville and Wetaskiwin ridings.
