DEPARTMENTS OF HAITI

In the administrative divisions of Haiti, the department (French: department, pronounced [depaʁt(ə)mɑ̃]) is the first of four levels of government. Haiti has divided administratively into ten departments, which are further subdivided into 42 arrondissements, 145 communes, and 571 communal sections.

Three Departments have roots in the former French colony of Saint-Domingue, namely: the Nord, Sud, and Ouest. In 1801, under Governor-General Toussaint Louverture, the "provinces," became known as departments. In 1821, Artibonite was created and in 1844, Nord-Ouest, both derived out of the Nord and Ouest departments.
