Lisgar was a federal electoral district in Manitoba, Canada, that was represented in the Canadian House of Commons from 1871 to 1988. This riding was created following the admission of Manitoba into the Canadian Confederation in 1870.

It was abolished in 1987 when it was redistributed into Brandon—Souris, Lisgar—Marquette and Provencher ridings.
