The Rural Municipality of Strathcona is a former rural municipality (RM) in the Canadian province of Manitoba. It was originally incorporated as a rural municipality in April 1906.[1] It ceased to exist on January 1, 2015 as a result of its provincially mandated amalgamation with the RM of Riverside to form the Rural Municipality of Prairie Lakes.[2]

The former RM is located northeast of Killarney and was named for Donald Smith, 1st Baron Strathcona and Mount Royal.
