I don't know of any online.  However, if you know a principal town within 
the search region, you can still use the system.

In the first step of the search, you check mark the province.
Then enter the a principal town and it will pull up the appropriate 
municipal records.


Altona, Manitoba - no listing

but, enter

Gretna, Manitoba - and you get 2 files for Lisgar Municipality

If know your people lived near but not in Gretna, then go back to the input 
page and enter Lisgar instead.  This pulls up all the Lisgar entries.

It's still a manual process but at least you can do it from home instead of 
ordering in a microfilm at a library.
