Portage-Lisgar is a south-central riding in Manitoba and includes the rural municipalities of Portage la Prairie, Cartier, St. Francois Xavier, MacDonald, Morris, Rhineland, Pembina, Manitou and South Norfolk, along with the cities and towns of Portage la Prairie, Treherne, St. Claude, Morris, Plum Coulee, Winkler, Morden, Manitou, Somerset, Swan Lake, Carman and Notre Dame de Lourdes.
The district was created in 1996 from parts of the former districts of Lisgar-Marquette, Portage-Interlake and Provencher. The riding lost ground to the Dauphin-Swan River-Neepawa and Brandon-Souris ridings but gained territory from Provencher and Selkirk-Interlake during the 2012 electoral redistribution.
