Riding profile: Located in the central-eastern Winnipeg, the riding has existed since 1879.

Its western boundary is the Red River and the northern boundary is the rail line.
The eastern boundary is Lagimodiere Boulevard while the southern boundary includes Elizabeth Road, the Seine River, Blenheim Avenue, Egerton Road, and Harrowby Avenue.
