Arthabaska is a provincial electoral district in the Centre-du-Québec region of Quebec, Canada that elects members to the National Assembly of Quebec. It includes the cities or municipalities of Victoriaville, Plessisville, and Princeville.

It was created for the 1890 election from a part of Drummond-Arthabaska electoral district.

In the change from the 2001 to the 2011 electoral map, Arthabaska lost Sainte-Hélène-de-Chester and Chesterville to the newly created Drummond–Bois-Francs electoral district, but gained nine municipalities from Lotbinière, which ceased to exist.
