Charlevoix is a former provincial electoral district in the Capitale-Nationale region of Quebec, Canada, which elected members to the National Assembly of Quebec. As of its final election, it included the municipalities of La Malbaie, Saint-Siméon, Baie-Saint-Paul and Baie-Sainte-Catherine.

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 1908. It disappeared in the 1912 election and its successor electoral district was Charlevoix-Saguenay.

It was recreated for the 1948 election and its final election was in 2008. It disappeared again in the 2012 election, and its successor electoral district was Charlevoix–Côte-de-Beaupré.[3]
