Joliette is a federal electoral district in Quebec, Canada, that has been represented in the House of Commons of Canada from 1867 to 1935 and since 1968.

It was created by the British North America Act of 1867 which preserved existing electoral districts in Lower Canada. In 1933, Joliette became part of the new electoral district of Joliette—L'Assomption—Montcalm.

It was created again in 1966 from Berthier—Maskinongé—delanaudière, Joliette—L'Assomption—Montcalm and Terrebonne ridings.

This riding lost territory to Berthier—Maskinongé during the 2012 electoral redistribution.

Following the 2022 Canadian federal electoral redistribution, the riding will largely be replaced by Joliette—Manawan. It loses the municipalities of Saint-Donat and Notre-Dame-de-la-Merci to Laurentides—Labelle; loses Entrelacs and Chertsey to Les Pays-d'en-Haut; and gains the Domaine-Ouellet area from Repentigny.
