North Province, Rwanda

North Province, Rwanda

North Province (Kinyarwanda: "Intara y'Amajyaruguru", French: "Province du Nord") is one of Rwanda's five provinces. It was created in early January 2006 as part of a government decentralization program that re-organized the country's local government structures.

North Province comprises most of the former provinces of Ruhengeri and Byumba, along with northern portions of Kigali Rural. It is divided into the districts of Burera, Byumba, Gakenke, Ruhengeri, and Rulindo.

The capital city of North Province is Byumba.
