HistoryEdit

The arrondissement of Évreux was created in 1800.[3] On 1 January 2006, the two cantons of Louviers-Nord and Louviers-Sud that previously belonged to the arrondissement of Évreux were added to the arrondissement of Les Andelys, and the canton of Amfreville-la-Campagne to the arrondissement of Bernay.[3][4] At the January 2017 reorganisation of the arrondissements of Eure, it lost 35 communes to the arrondissement of Les Andelys and 77 communes to the arrondissement of Bernay, and it gained one commune from the arrondissement of Bernay.[5]

As a result of the reorganisation of the cantons of France which came into effect in 2015, the borders of the cantons are no longer related to the borders of the arrondissements. The cantons of the arrondissement of Évreux were, as of January 2015:[6]
