Roberval—Lac-Saint-Jean (formerly known as Roberval) was a federal electoral district in Quebec, Canada, that represented in the House of Commons of Canada from 1949 until 2015.

The riding was created in 1947 from parts of Lake St-John—Roberval riding. It was dissolved into Lac-Saint-Jean and Jonquière during the 2012 electoral redistribution.

The neighbouring ridings are Abitibi—Baie-James—Nunavik—Eeyou, Chicoutimi—Le Fjord, Jonquière—Alma, Montmorency—Charlevoix—Haute-Côte-Nord, and Saint-Maurice—Champlain.

This is the riding with the highest percentage of non-immigrants (99.4%)[3] and of people with French as their home language (also 99.4%).[4]
