History

Winnipeg North was created in 1917 and renamed in 1997 to Winnipeg North-St. Paul. However, in 2003, parts of it was redistributed and its name reverted to Winnipeg North.

The riding has traditionally gone to an NDP or Liberal MP, and with NDP Judy Wasylycia-Leis at the helm from 1997 to 2010. When she stepped down to launch an ultimately unsuccessful bid for mayor of Winnipeg, MLA Kevin Lamoureux ran for the seat in the by-election and won. He has been MP ever since.
