Winnipeg South Centre is a federal electoral district in Manitoba, Canada, that has been represented in the Canadian House of Commons from 1925 to 1979 and since 1988.

Geography[edit]

The district includes the neighbourhoods of Tuxedo, Sir John Franklin, River Heights, Osborne Village, Crescentwood, Earl Grey, Rockwood, Grant Park, Riverview, Lord Roberts, Beaumont, Wildwood, Fort Garry, Maybank, and the western half of the Pembina Strip in the city of Winnipeg.

History[edit]

The electoral district was originally created in 1924 from Winnipeg South and Winnipeg Centre ridings. It generally consisted of the part of the city west of the Red River and north of the Assiniboine River. In 1952, it gained parts the Rural Municipality (and later city) of St. James. In 1966, it gained parts the municipalities of Assiniboia, and Charleswood, and the Town of Tuxedo.

In 1976, it was abolished with part transferred to Selkirk—Interlake, Winnipeg—Assiniboine, Winnipeg—St. James and Winnipeg North Centre ridings.

The electoral district was re-created in 1987 from Winnipeg North Centre, Winnipeg—Assiniboine and Winnipeg—Fort Garry ridings.

The district's boundaries were redistributed in 1996 and 2004.
