The Rural Municipality of Ethelbert is a former rural municipality (RM) in the Canadian province of Manitoba. It was originally incorporated as a rural municipality on March 1, 1905.[1] It ceased on January 1, 2015 as a result of its provincially-mandated amalgamation with the Town of Ethelbert to form the Municipality of Ethelbert.[2]

The westernmost approximately one-quarter of the former RM lied within Duck Mountain Provincial Forest. It was the largest area of the forest that lied within any single rural municipality.
