The riding contains the west end of Quebec City — namely, part of the borough of Sainte-Foy–Sillery–Cap-Rouge — and the municipality immediately to its west, Saint-Augustin-de-Desmaures. The district changed significantly in the 2011 redistribution, keeping only 54 per cent of its previous territory.
This is the home riding of cabinet Minister Sam Hamad (economic development and innovation; before that, transport). But it's also been a PQ riding in the past, serving as the seat of PQ cabinet minister Paul Bégin from 1994 to 2003.

PQ's Paul Bégin defeated Independent André Arthur and was appointed to cabinet (Arthur is now an Independent MP for the federal riding of Portneuf-Jacques-Cartier).
