Perm Krai ( _ru. Пе́рмский край, "Permsky kray") is a federal subject of Russia (a krai) that came into existence on December 1, 2005 as a result of the 2004 referendum on the merger of Perm Oblast and Komi-Permyak Autonomous Okrug. The city of Perm became the administrative center of the new federal subject.

Komi-Permyak Okrug retains its autonomous status within Perm Krai during the transitional period of 2006–2008. It also retains a budget separate from that of the krai, keeping all federal transfers. After that, Komi-Permyak Okrug's budget will be subject to the budgeting law of Perm Krai. The transitional period was implemented in part due to the fact that Komi-Permyak Okrug relies heavily on federal subsidies, and an abrupt cut would be detrimental to its economy.
