The Rural Municipality of Harrison is a former rural municipality (RM) in the Canadian province of Manitoba. It was originally incorporated as a rural municipality on December 22, 1883.[1] It ceased on January 1, 2015 as a result of its provincially mandated amalgamation with the RM of Park to form the Municipality of Harrison Park.[2]

The RM was located north of Brandon on the Yellowhead Highway with its offices at Newdale, Manitoba. The main reserve of the Rolling River First Nation lied within the east-central portion of the RM. The RM was named for David Howard Harrison who became premier of Manitoba in 1887.
