Harrison is a rural municipality in the province of Manitoba in Western Canada. It is located north of Brandon on the Yellowhead Highway with its offices at Newdale, Manitoba. The main reserve of the Rolling River First Nation lies within the rectangle of the RM, in its east-central portion, although the two are separate governmental entities.

The R.M. was incorporated in 1883 and named for David Howard Harrison who became premier of Manitoba in 1887.
