Lasalle (also known as Lasalle—Émard—Côte Saint-Paul) was a federal electoral district in Quebec, Canada, that was represented in the House of Commons of Canada from 1968 to 1988.

This riding was created in 1966 from parts of Jacques-Cartier—Lasalle and Saint-Henri ridings.

It consisted of the City of LaSalle and a part of the City of Montreal bordering on that city.

The name of the electoral district was changed in 1973 to "Lasalle—Émard—Côte Saint-Paul".

The electoral district was abolished in 1976 when it was redistributed into a new Lasalle riding, and Verdun and Westmount ridings.

The electoral district was abolished in 1987 when it was merged into LaSalle—Émard riding.
