Riding profile

riding map

The riding of Trois-Rivières consists of a central slice of the city of the same name, on the north shore of the St. Lawrence River between Montreal and Quebec City.

The riding was first created way back in 1792. In the 2011 redistribution, it lost some territory along its northwestern edge, but gained a rectangular area in its southwest.

Political history

The riding has been won by three different parties since 1998. It was the seat of the PQ's Guy Julien, minister for agriculture and fisheries, then industry and then revenue in the 1990s and early 2000s. The ADQ briefly held the riding following the 2007 election. Liberal Danielle St-Amand has won the seat in the last two general elections. In February 2013, she announced she would not be running in the next election for health reasons.
