The Rural Municipality of Franklin is a former rural municipality (RM) in the Canadian province of Manitoba. It was originally incorporated as a rural municipality on December 22, 1883. It ceased on January 1, 2015 as a result of its provincially mandated amalgamation with the Town of Emerson to form the Municipality of Emerson – Franklin.
The RM was located in the southeastern part of the province, along the border with the state of Minnesota in the United States. The 2006 Census reported a population of 1,768 persons, a slight decrease from the 1,781 reported in the 2001 Census. The Roseau River Anishinabe First Nation Indian reserve lied between the RM of Franklin and the neighbouring RM of Montcalm.
