The Rural Municipality of Swan River is a former rural municipality (RM) in the Canadian province of Manitoba. It was originally incorporated as a rural municipality on May 1, 1901.[1] It ceased on January 1, 2015 as a result of its provincially mandated amalgamation with the Village of Benito to form the Municipality of Swan Valley West.[2]

The former RM is located in the Parkland Region of the province, adjacent to the Province of Saskatchewan, and surrounds the Town of Swan River. It had a population of 2,784 in the 2006 census. The southernmost part of Manitoba's Porcupine Provincial Forest is located within the northern portion of the former RM.
