Nelson was a federal electoral district that was represented in the House of Commons of Canada from 1917 to 1935. It covered northern Manitoba, Canada, a vast wilderness area dotted with small municipalities and First Nations reserves.

The riding was created in 1914 from parts of Dauphin riding. When Nelson was abolished in 1933, its entire area was transferred into the new riding of Churchill.
