HistoryEdit

The arrondissement of Louhans was created in 1800, disbanded in 1926 and restored in 1942.[4] In January 2017 it gained seven communes from the arrondissement of Chalon-sur-Saône and two communes from the arrondissement of Mâcon.[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 Louhans were, as of January 2015:[6]

  1. Beaurepaire-en-Bresse
  2. Cuiseaux
  3. Cuisery
  4. Louhans
  5. Montpont-en-Bresse
  6. Montret
  7. Pierre-de-Bresse
  8. Saint-Germain-du-Bois
