The Rural Municipality of Hillsburg is a former rural municipality (RM) in the Canadian province of Manitoba. It was originally incorporated as a rural municipality on November 19, 1912.[1] It ceased on January 1, 2015 as a result of its provincially-mandated amalgamation with the RM of Shell River and the Town of Roblin to form the Municipality of Hillsburg – Roblin – Shell River.[2]

The Valley River 63A Indian reserve lied on its east side. About 30 percent of the former RM lied within Duck Mountain Provincial Forest.
