Elmwood is a provincial electoral division in the Canadian province of Manitoba.


The original Elmwood riding existed from 1914 to 1920, in what was then a suburban community in the north of Winnipeg. Its provincial Members of the Legislative Assembly (MLAs) were:

Parliament Years Member Party
14th 1914-1915     Harry Mewhirter Conservative
15th 1915–1920     Thomas Hamilton Liberal


The modern Elmwood riding was created by redistribution in 1957, and has formally existed since the provincial election of 1958. It is located in the northeastern section of the amalgamated City of Winnipeg; the Red River forms its western and part of its southern boundary. The Elmwood riding existing from 1958 to 1969 was confined to the actual Elmwood area of the city of Winnipeg. In the redistribution of 1969 part of East Kildonan was added. Since 1981 the Elmwood riding has moved further north into East Kildonan taking in much of the old Kildonan riding (existing between 1958 and 1981) while the eastern part of the Elmwood area has been removed and added to the Concordia riding created in 1981.
