Terrebonne is a federal electoral district in the Canadian province of Quebec. It was represented in the House of Commons of Canada from 1867 to 1997, when it was dissolved in an electoral redistricting, and was reconstituted as an electoral district again beginning with the 2015 election.

History[edit]

The riding was originally created by the British North America Act of 1867 which preserved existing electoral districts in Lower Canada. It was abolished in 1996 into Repentigny and Terrebonne—Blainville.

It was recreated during the 2012 federal electoral redistribution from parts of Terrebonne—Blainville (51%) and Montcalm (49%), and consists solely of the city of Terrebonne.
