HistoryEdit

The arrondissement of Issoire was created in 1800.[5] At the January 2017 reorganisation of the arrondissements of Puy-de-Dôme, it gained 21 communes from the arrondissement of Clermont-Ferrand.[6] In January 2021 it gained the commune of Saulzet-le-Froid from the arrondissement of Clermont-Ferrand.[7]

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 Issoire were, as of January 2015:[8]

  1. Ardes
  2. Besse-et-Saint-Anastaise
  3. Champeix
  4. Issoire
  5. Jumeaux
  6. Saint-Germain-Lembron
