Vimont is a provincial electoral district in the Laval region of Quebec, Canada, that elects members to the National Assembly of Quebec. It consists of part of the city of Laval.

It was created for the 1981 election from parts of Fabre and Mille-Îles electoral districts.

In the change from the 2001 to the 2011 electoral map, it lost much of its territory to the newly created Sainte-Rose electoral district, but gained some territory to the east from Mille-Îles.
