Springfield was a federal electoral district in Manitoba, Canada, that was represented in the Canadian House of Commons from 1917 to 1968.

This riding was created in 1914 from parts of Selkirk riding. It was abolished in 1966 when it was redistributed into Churchill, Portage, Provencher, Selkirk and Winnipeg North ridings.

Springfield was a swing riding, often returning members of the Liberal, Progressive Conservative, and New Democratic parties and their historical equivalents. The riding was most recently held by NDP MP Ed Schreyer, before it was dissolved into surrounding ridings.
