HistoryEdit

The arrondissement of Château-Gontier was created in 1800, disbanded in 1926 and restored in 1942.[4] At the March 2016 reorganisation of the arrondissements of Mayenne, it gained 14 communes from the arrondissement of Laval.[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 Château-Gontier were, as of January 2015:[6]

  1. Bierné
  2. Château-Gontier-Est
  3. Château-Gontier-Ouest
  4. Cossé-le-Vivien
  5. Craon
  6. Grez-en-Bouère
  7. Saint-Aignan-sur-Roë
