The Rural Municipality of Oakland 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 Village of Wawanesa to form the Municipality of Oakland – Wawanesa.[2]



Stratherne School was established in November 1884. It moved in 1890 and, in 1950 it was replaced by a new school. The school was finally closed in 1962. In 1970 a cairn was erected to mark the site.[3]
