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. 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.
