The Rural Municipality of Louise is a former rural municipality (RM) in the Canadian province of Manitoba. It was originally incorporated as a rural municipality on February 14, 1880.[1] It ceased on January 1, 2015 as a result of its provincially mandated amalgamation with the Town of Pilot Mound and the Village of Crystal City to form the Municipality of Louise.[2]

The former RM is located in the southern part of the province, on the border with the state of North Dakota in the United States. The 2006 Census reported a population of 819 persons, a 17.2% decline from the 2001 Census figure of 989 persons.


According to Statistics Canada, the former RM had an area of 932.67 km² (360.11 sq mi).
