HistoryEdit

"Montmorency" riding was created by the British North America Act of 1867, and was abolished in 1914 when it was redistributed into Charlevoix—Montmorency and Quebec County ridings.

The riding was recreated in 1966 from parts of Charlevoix and Québec—Montmorency.

It was defined in 1966 to consist of:

  • the cities of Beauport, Charlesbourg and Giffard;
  • the Towns of Beaupré, Courville, Montmorency, Orsainville and Villeneuve;

  • in the County of Québec: the municipalities of Beauport West, Charlesbourg East and Sainte-Thérèse-de-Lisieux.

In 1976, it was redefined to consist of:

In 1990, it was renamed "Beauport—Montmorency—Orléans".
