Selkirk was a federal electoral district in Manitoba, Canada, that was represented in the Canadian House of Commons from 1871 to 1979.

This riding was created in 1871 when the province of Manitoba was created.

It was abolished in 1976 when it was redistributed into Provencher, Selkirk—Interlake, Winnipeg North Centre and Winnipeg—Birds Hill ridings.

It was recreated in 1987 from parts Selkirk—Interlake, Winnipeg North Centre and Winnipeg—Birds Hill ridings. For information about that riding, see Selkirk—Red River. This new incarnation was renamed in 1990 to Selkirk—Red River and abolished in 1996.
