It was originally incorporated as a rural municipality on April 10, 1920.[1] It ceased on January 1, 2015 as a result of its provincially mandated amalgamation with the RM of Lansdowne to form the Municipality of Glenella – Lansdowne.[2]

The RM had a population of 555 in 1996 and 518 in 2001.[3] It was situated west of Lake Manitoba, northeast of Brandon and northwest of Winnipeg. Provincial Road 261 was slightly north of Glenella.
