Being given a strong majority of anglophone voters, this district is traditionally liberal. She is currently represented with the National Assembly of Quebec by the liberal deputy Geoffrey Kelley.
The electoral district of Jacques-Cartier is one of oldest in Quebec. In the beginning (1792), it was about the county of Montreal , which included/understood the part of the island of Montreal located apart from the city of the same name. Towards 1853, its name changed for that of Jacques-Cartier .
In 1867, the district included/understood all the west of the island of Montreal. It was often divided during the years due to the fast increase in its population. The following districts were detached from it in all or partly:
- Westmount (1912),
- Montreal-Verdun (1923),
- Montreal-Our-Lady-of-Grace and Montreal-Outremont (1939),
- Of Arcy-McGee, Marguerite-Bourgeoys, Robert-Baldwin and the St. Lawrence (1966),
- Acadie, Mount-Royal and Point-Claire (later Nelligan) (1973),
- Inlays (1981).
