History[edit]

This riding was originally created in 1914 from Winnipeg and Selkirk ridings.

In 1997, it was renamed "Winnipeg North—St. Paul".

In 2003, Winnipeg North—St. Paul was abolished with parts transferred to Winnipeg North, Winnipeg Centre and Kildonan—St. Paul ridings. Winnipeg North was re-created from parts of Winnipeg North—St. Paul and Winnipeg North Centre.

Often a safe seat for the New Democratic Party, in 2011 Winnipeg North was narrowly retained by Liberal incumbent Kevin Lamoureux in an otherwise dismal performance by the party nationwide.[8] Along with Wascana in Saskatchewan, Winnipeg North was one of only two seats won by the Liberals in the Prairie Provinces.
