    Provencher is a federal electoral district in Manitoba, Canada, that has been represented in the House of Commons of Canada since 1871. It is primarily a rural district. Its largest community is the city of Steinbach. The electoral district was created in 1871 after Manitoba joined the Canadian Confederation in 1870. It is notable for being the district that elected Louis Riel to the House of Commons. The riding has a history of electing both liberal and conservative MPs, including Liberal Party MPs from 1875–1878, 1904–1957, 1968–1972 and 1993–2000; and conservative MPs (from the historical Conservative Party, the Progressive Conservatives, the Canadian Alliance, and the current Conservative Party), from 1871–1873, 1878–1904, 1957–1968, 1972–1993, and 2000–present. Louis Riel ran as an independent. This riding lost territory to Selkirk—Interlake—Eastman and Portage—Lisgar, and gained territory from Selkirk—Interlake during the 2012 electoral redistribution.

    Name Meaning

    Via Old French and Latin, from Greek Georgios (a derivative of geōrgos ‘farmer’, from ‘earth’ + ergein ‘to work’). This was the name of several early saints, including the shadowy figure who is now the patron of England (as well as of Germany and Portugal). If the saint existed at all, he was perhaps martyred in Palestine in the persecutions of Christians instigated by the Emperor Diocletian at the beginning of the 4th century. The popular legend in which the hero slays a dragon is a medieval Italian invention. He was for a long time a more important saint in the Orthodox Church than in the West, and the name was not much used in England during the Middle Ages, even after St George came to be regarded as the patron of England in the 14th century. Its use increased from the 1400s, and by 1500 it was regularly among the most popular male names. This popularity was reinforced when George I came to the throne in 1714 , bringing this name with him from Germany. It has been one of the most popular English boys' names ever since.
