Bellechasse was a federal electoral district in Quebec, Canada, that was represented in the Canadian House of Commons from 1867 until the 1997 election, when it became Bellechasse—Etchemins—Montmagny—L'Islet. After redistribution prior to the 2004 election, that riding became Lévis—Bellechasse.

In 1947, Bellechasse was re-defined to consist of the county of Bellechasse, the municipalities of Rivière-Boyer, St. Henri-de-Lauzon and the village of St. Henri in the county of Lévis, the municipality of St. Luc-de-Dijon the county of Dorchester, and the municipalities of Berthier and St. François-de-la-Rivière-du-Sud in the county of Montmagny.

In 1966, Bellechasse was re-defined to consist of the Town of Montmagny, the County of Bellechasse, parts of the County of Dorchester, and the County of Montmagny (except the municipality of Cap-Saint-Ignace).

In 1976, Bellechasse was re-defined to consist of the City of Montmagny, the Towns of Lac-Etchemin, L'Islet and Saint-Pamphile, the County of Montmagny, the County of L'Islet (except the parish municipality of Sainte-Louise and the municipality of Saint-Roch-des-Aulnets), parts of the Counties of Bellechasse and Dorchester.
