The Rural Municipality of Albert is a former rural municipality (RM) in the Canadian province of Manitoba. It was originally incorporated as a rural municipality on December 1, 1905.[1] It ceased on January 1, 2015 as a result of its provincially mandated amalgamation with the RM of Arthur and the RM of Edward to form the Municipality of Two Borders.[2]

It had a population of 339 in the 2006 census and was located in the Westman Region of the province.

This primarily agricultural municipality was formed in 1905 by a subdivision of the Rural Municipality of Arthur. The new entity was named after Albert Edward, Prince of Wales (later King Edward VII).

The population in recent years has been dropping; by 11.3% from 2001 to 2006. It has a land area of 769.55 square kilometres. The rural municipality ranks 3,544th in terms of population in Canada. It is located directly east of the border of Saskatchewan.
