Joliette is a provincial electoral district in the Lanaudière region of Quebec, Canada that elects members to the National Assembly of Quebec.

It was created for the 1867 election (and an electoral district of that name existed earlier in the Legislative Assembly of the Province of Canada). Its final election was in 1970. It disappeared in the 1973 election and its successor electoral district was Joliette-Montcalm.

However, Joliette-Montcalm disappeared in the 1981 election and Joliette was recreated from parts of Joliette-Montcalm and Berthier electoral districts.

In the change from the 2001 to the 2011 electoral map, it lost Sainte-Marcelline-de-Kildare to Berthier electoral district but gained Sainte-Mélanie from that same electoral district.
