Roberval (provincial Electoral District)

Roberval is a provincial electoral district in the Saguenay–Lac-Saint-Jean region of Quebec, Canada, that elects members to the National Assembly of Quebec. It includes the cities or municipalities of Roberval, Normandin, Dolbeau-Mistassini, Péribonka, Chambord and Saint-Félicien.

It was created for the 1931 election from parts of the Lac-Saint-Jean provincial electoral district.

In the change from the 2001 to the 2011 electoral map, it gained Saint-André-du-Lac-Saint-Jean and part of the unorganized territory of Passes-Dangereuses from Lac-Saint-Jean electoral district.

The district is named after 16th century French explorer Jean-François de la Roque de Roberval.
