Current MLA: Vacant.
Incumbent Bill Blaikie, NDP, not seeking re-election.
Riding profile: The original Elmwood riding existed from 1914 to 1920 in what was then a suburban community in the north of Winnipeg.
The modern Elmwood riding was created by redistribution in 1957 and has formally existed since the provincial election of 1958. It has been an NDP stronghold since 1962.
In the redistrbution 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.
The riding is located in the northeast of the city. The Red River form the southern and western boundaries. The eastern boundaries include CP’s main railway and Raleigh Street.
The northern boundary is made up of Dunbeath Avenue, Henderson Highway, Mossdale Avenue, and the southwestern edge of Fraser’s Grove Park.
As a result of the 2008 redivision of boundaries the riding has expanded eastward, adding the residential area between Watt Street and Raleigh Street.
