Canada election results: Trois-Rivières

View Link »

Bloc Québécois candidate René Villemure is the projected winner in the riding of Trois-Rivières.

The riding contains most urban parts of Trois-Rivières, excluding Pointe-du-Lac to the west. It lost the northeastern, rural areas of Trois-Rivières during the 2012 electoral boundaries redistribution, but added the western edge of the city.

The riding has existed since Canada’s first election in 1867 (then known as “Three Rivers”).

Louise Charbonneau was first elected to the riding in 2019 to represent the Bloc Québécois, but she announced in January 2021 that she would not be seeking re-election. Prior to that, the seat was held by the NDP’s Robert Aubin, who was elected during the orange wave in 2011.

From 1993 to 2011, the riding had been represented by a Bloc MP.

Former Quebec premier Maurice Duplessis was born and raised in Trois-Rivières.
