It was created for the 1867 election (and an electoral district of that name existed earlier in the Legislative Assembly of the Province of Canada). Its final election was in 1936, and its successor electoral district was Vaudreuil-Soulanges.

It was re-created for the 2003 election from parts of Salaberry-Soulanges and Vaudreuil.

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

In the change from the 2011 to the 2017 electoral map, the riding will gain Hudson from Vaudreuil.
