Transcona is a provincial electoral division in the Canadian province of Manitoba. The riding was created by redistribution in 1968, and has formally existed since the 1969 provincial election.

Transcona is located in the easternmost tip of the City of Winnipeg. It is bordered to the west by Radisson, and in all other directions by the rural riding of Springfield.

The population in 1996 was 19648. The average family income in 1999 was $50,089, with an unemployment rate of 6.70%. There is a significant Ukrainian Canadian population in the riding, about 7% of the total.

The riding is primarily working-class, and includes the Canadian National rail yards. 15% of the riding's industry is in the manufacturing sector, with a further 14% in retail trade.

The riding usually elects members of the New Democratic Party (one-time party leader Russell Paulley represented the riding for eight years), and is now considered a safe seat for the party.
