Point Douglas

Point Douglas is a provincial electoral division in Manitoba, Canada.


The division was created by redistribution for the 1969 provincial election, eliminated in 1978, and re-established in 1989 from parts of Burrows, Logan and St. Johns. It is located in north-central Winnipeg, and includes the Point Douglas neighbourhood.

Point Douglas is bordered to the east by St. Boniface and Elmwood, to the south by Fort Rouge, to the north by St. Johns, and to the west by Burrows, Wellington and Minto. Different parts of the division are included in the federal ridings of Winnipeg Centre and Winnipeg North.

Point Douglas is named after Thomas Douglas, the 5th Earl of Selkirk, who established the Red River Settlement in 1812. His namesake, twentieth-century politician Tommy Douglas, also lived in the Point Douglas neighbourhood in the early 1910s.
