History

The electoral district was created in 1933 as "St. Hyacinthe—Bagot". In 1947, the name was changed to "Saint-Hyacinthe—Bagot".

In 1966, the riding was abolished. Parts of the riding were combined with parts of Chambly—Rouville and Richelieu—Verchères riding into a new riding named "Saint-Hyacinthe". Saint-Hyacinthe was renamed "Saint-Hyacinthe—Bagot" after the 1980 election.
