Placentia—St. Mary’s is a provincial electoral district for the House of Assembly of Newfoundland and Labrador, Canada.

An economically troubled area, Placentia and St. Mary’s includes the former U.S. naval base at Argentia, as well as Voisey Bay Nickel's planned processing facility at Long Harbour. Communities include: Admiral's Beach, Angel's Cove, Argentia, Branch, Coote Pond, Colinet, Cuslett, Dunville, Forest Field, Freshwater, Fox Harbour, Gaskiers, Great Barasway, Harricott, Jerseyside, Little Barasway, Mall Bay, Mitchell's Brook, Mount Carmel, New Bridge, North Harbour, O'Donnells, Patrick's Cove, Peter's River, Placentia, Point Verde, Point Le Haye, Point Lance, Riverhead, Ship Cove, Ship Harbour, St. Bride's, St. Catherine's, St. Mary's, St. Joseph's, St. Shott's, St. Stephen's and St. Vincent's.

A Tory stronghold, but many constituents backed rebel MHA Fabian Manning, who was ejected from the PC caucus in 2005 after splitting with Premier Danny Williams on fisheries policies.
