Rural Municipality of Thompson
The RM was incorporated on 1 November 1908. It took its name from an early settler and its first postmaster, William Thompson. Thomson homesteaded on 5-5-6W in about 1874 and his home was central to the early community. The area was known locally as Thompsonville at that time.
