Rural Municipality of Archie
The Rural Municipality of Archie 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 RM of Ellice and the Village of St. Lazare to form the Rural Municipality of Ellice – Archie.
Archie was named in 1883 after Archie McDonald, a chief factor with the Hudson's Bay Company at Fort Ellice. Its economic base is primarily agriculture and the geography includes the Assiniboine River and related valleys. It is about 345 square kilometres and the largest centre is McAuley. It borders a small part of the Birdtail Sioux First Nation in its northeast section.
