HistoryEdit

It was created in 2003 as "Charlevoix—Montmorency" from parts of Beauport—Montmorency—Côte-de-Beaupré—Île-d'Orléans, Charlesbourg—Jacques-Cartier and Charlevoix ridings. Its name was changed to "Montmorency—Charlevoix—Haute-Côte-Nord" after the 2004 election.

The riding of Charlevoix—Montmorency also existed from 1914 to 1924. from parts of Charlevoix, Chicoutimi—Saguenay and Montmorency ridings.

It initially consisted of the parishes of St. Tite, St. Féréol, St. Joachim, Château Richer, Ste. Anne and the village of Ste. Anne.

The electoral district was abolished in 1924 when it was redistributed into Charlevoix—Saguenay and Quebec—Montmorency ridings. Its only Member of Parliament was Pierre-François Casgrain of the Liberal Party of Canada.

The renamed Beauport—Côte-de-Beaupré—Île d'Orléans—Charlevoix riding lost territory to Manicouagan and Beauport—Limoilou, and gained territory from Beauport—Limoilou during the 2012 electoral redistribution.
