Radisson is a provincial electoral division in the Canadian province of Manitoba. It was created by redistribution in 1957, and has formally existed since the 1958 provincial election. The riding is located in the northeastern section of the City of Winnipeg and is named after Pierre-Esprit Radisson, a seventeenth-century explorer.

Radisson is bordered on the east by Transcona and Springfield, to the south by Southdale, to the north by River East, and to the west by Rossmere, Concordia and St. Boniface. The Canadian National Railway Symington Yards are in the southern part of the riding.

The riding's population in 1996 was 20,113. In 1999, the average family income was $54084, and the unemployment rate was 4.60%. Radisson's francophone population is 9%, and there are also significant Ukrainian (7%) and German (6%) communities.

Manufacturing accounts for 14% of Radisson's industry, with a further 13% in the retail trade.

New Democratic Party MLA and former party leader Russell Paulley represented the riding for many years, although the boundaries changed dramatically with the 1998 redistribution. The Progressive Conservatives won the riding in 1977, and the Liberals did the same in 1988. In both cases, the NDP regained the seat after a single term.
