Victoria—The Lakes is a provincial electoral district in Nova Scotia, Canada, that elects one member of the Nova Scotia House of Assembly.

Its Member of the Legislative Assembly (MLA) since the 2017 election has been Keith Bain of the Progressive Conservative Party of Nova Scotia.

It was created in 1867 as Victoria, composing all of Victoria County. In 1993, the district gained the area north of the southern border of the Cape Breton Highlands National Park.[1] In 2003, Victoria was renamed Victoria-The Lakes. It lost the top of Inverness County to Inverness and gained some of the rural areas of Cape Breton The Lakes.
