St. Norbert

  • Print

Slightly rejigged from its previous boundaries, St. Norbert is the southernmost riding in the city of Winnipeg. It includes St. Norbert, Richmond West, Richmond Lakes, Waverley Heights and Fairfield Park.

It was left slightly underpopulated during the boundary changes because it will end up with a large portion of the new developments in Waverley West.

The riding is a little younger than average, with more than one in five residents identified as immigrants. Almost a quarter of residents are visible minorities with large Chinese and East Indian communities.

It is a largely middle-class riding built around south Winnipeg suburbs. It has the lowest divorce rate in Winnipeg ridings.

Three in 10 residents do not speak English as their first language. Services and education are the main economic drivers. It is one of the most educated ridings with more than seven in 10 adults between 25 and 65 having more than a high school education.

Politics

The riding is currently held by the NDP’s Marilyn Brick, but is has been held by all three parties since it was first created in 1981.

Brick is not running again and the NDP are in disarray in the riding thanks to some party infighting around the nomination, which was only finalized near the end of August.

The Tories have their eyes on the prize here as do the Liberals, who are running former Tory MLA Marcel Laurendeau.
