This is a list of members of the Canadian Senate from the province of Quebec.

Quebec has 24 permanent Senate divisions.

In Quebec, Senate divisions are fixed and represented by one member, unlike other provinces where no such divisions legally exist. Senators must also either own property worth $4,000 or maintain a residence in their division.

Current Quebec senators

The province of Quebec has 24 senate divisions which are constitutionally mandated. In all other provinces, a senate division is strictly an optional designation of the senator's own choosing, and has no real constitutional or legal standing. A senator who does not choose a special senate division is considered a senator for the province at large.

Members by Senate division

The boundaries for all Quebec districts are mandated in the Constitution Act 1867 and cannot change without a constitutional amendment. The boundaries are described in the 1859 Consolidated Statutes of Canada.

Self designated senate division can be used by senators who were appointed under the Regional Expansion Clause Section 26 of the British North American Act. This clause can be used to increase the Senate seats by 1 or 2 senators for each region (Ontario Quebec the Maritimes and the Western Provinces). Prime Minister Brian Mulroney is to date the only one to successfully use this clause on September 27, 1990.
