Rural Municipality of Pembina
The Rural Municipality of Pembina is a former rural municipality (RM) in the Canadian province of Manitoba. It was originally incorporated as a rural municipality on November 1, 1890. It ceased on January 1, 2015 as a result of its provincially mandated amalgamation with the Town of Manitou to form the Municipality of Pembina.
The former RM is located in the southern part of the province, along the border with the state of North Dakota in the United States. It had a population of 1,712 persons as of the 2006 Census, a decline from 1,769 persons reported in the 2001 Census. The Boundary Trail Railway was partly owned by the former RM and serves local producers.
The former RM is historically famous for the setting of the final invasion of Canada from the neighbouring US, performed by the Fenian Brotherhood in 1871.
According to Statistics Canada, the former RM had an area of 1,114.76 km² (430.41 sq mi).
