Three Rivers and St. Maurice (French: Trois-Rivières-et-Saint-Maurice; also known as Three Rivers—St. Maurice) was a federal electoral district in Quebec, Canada, that was represented in the House of Commons of Canada from 1892 to 1935.

This riding was created as "Three Rivers and St. Maurice" riding in 1892 from Three Rivers and Saint Maurice ridings. It was renamed "Three Rivers—St. Maurice" in 1924 and defined to consist of the Cities of Three Rivers and Shawinigan Falls and the County of St. Maurice.

The electoral district was abolished in 1933 when it was redistributed into St-Maurice—Laflèche and Three Rivers ridings.
