Acadie is a provincial electoral district in Quebec, Canada, that elects members to the National Assembly of Quebec. It is located in northern Montreal and consists of parts of the Saint-Laurent and Ahuntsic-Cartierville boroughs.

It was created as L'Acadie for the 1973 election from parts of Ahuntsic and Saint-Laurent electoral districts. It changed to its present name in 1989.

In the change from the 2001 to the 2011 electoral map, its territory was unchanged.
