The Rural Municipality of Lakeview is a former rural municipality (RM) in the Canadian province of Manitoba. 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 Westbourne and the Town of Gladstone to form the Municipality of WestLake – Gladstone.[2]

Located on the west shore of Lake Manitoba, the first immigrants to the area that became the RM were from Iceland.[citation needed] The RM's first Council included: Magnus Peterson, G.W. Langdon (reeve), Jas. M. Birnie, John Arksey, Alf W. Law, George Hall and Earl E. Davidson.
