Cartwright–Roblin Municipality is a rural municipality in the Canadian province of Manitoba that incorporated on January 1, 2015 via the amalgamation of the RM of Roblin (2011 population 932) and the Village of Cartwright (2011 population 308).[1] It was formed as a requirement of The Municipal Amalgamations Act, which required that municipalities with a population less than 1,000 amalgamate with one or more neighbouring municipalities by 2015.[2] The Government of Manitoba initiated these amalgamations in order for municipalities to meet the 1997 minimum population requirement of 1,000 to incorporate a municipality.[3]

The former Rural Municipality of Roblin in the Canadian province of Manitoba was originally incorporated as a rural municipality on November 15, 1902.[4] It ceased on January 1, 2015 as a result of its provincially mandated amalgamation with the Village of Cartwright to form Cartwright – Roblin Municipality.[5]

The former RM is located in the Pembina Valley Region of the province along the border of the state of North Dakota in the United States of America. According to the Canada 2006 Census, the former RM had a population of 964.


According to Statistics Canada, the former RM had an area of 716.15 km² (276.51 sq mi).
