Saint Boniface (French: Saint-Boniface) is a federal electoral district that has been represented in the Canadian House of Commons since 1925. It is located in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

In 1996, its English name was changed from "St. Boniface" to "Saint Boniface".

The district covers roughly the southern portion of the city of Winnipeg, Manitoba, east of the Red River. In particular, it contains the Franco-Manitobain community of Saint Boniface and roughly the northern two-thirds of the community of St. Vital. The riding (as federal electoral districts are called in Canada) has a sizeable French population (16% according to the last census) and is considered a Liberal Party stronghold. It is the only riding in Western Canada that regularly elects francophone candidates to parliament.

There exists also a provincial electoral district of a similar name (St. Boniface) within Manitoba.

The federal riding's name has undergone various changes since its creation in 1924.
