Chapleau is a provincial electoral district in the Outaouais region of Quebec, Canada that elects members to the National Assembly of Quebec. It is located within the city of Gatineau.

It was created for the 1981 election from a part of Papineau electoral district.

In the change from the 2001 to the 2011 electoral map, its territory shifted slightly to the west. It gained territory west of Autoroute 50 from Gatineau electoral district, but lost some of its easternmost territory to Papineau electoral district.

It is named after former Quebec Premier Joseph-Adolphe Chapleau who was in power from 1879 to 1882.

Since its creation for the 1981 election, the riding has been a Liberal stronghold. Located in the strongly federalist Outaouais region of West Quebec, the riding has a large number of immigrants, federal public servants, and bilingual households, which are all demographic groups that tilt heavily towards the Liberals during provincial elections. More than 70% of the riding voted against sovereignty during the 1995 referendum.
