Dauphin was a provincial electoral division in the Canadian province of Manitoba. It was created in 1881 with the expansion of the province's western boundary, eliminated in 1886, re-established in 1892, and finally abolished in 1999. Most of its territory went to the new riding of Dauphin-Roblin, though a small amount went to the riding of Swan River.
Dauphin was initially centred on the community of Dauphin, Manitoba, though it now encompasses much rural territory as well. It was located in the province's mid-northern region, close to the provincial border with Saskatchewan.
It will be a newly formed riding in the next election after the latest boundary redistribution that will expand to include Ste. Rose du Lac.
