It was created for the 1973 election from parts of the Shefford, Sherbrooke and Stanstead electoral districts.

In the change from the 2001 to the 2011 electoral map, it lost the part of western Sherbrooke that it formerly had to the Richmond electoral district and the municipalities of Barnston-Ouest and Stanstead-Est to the Saint-François electoral district. However, it gained a number of municipalities from Brome-Missisquoi.
