Central finland province

The Central Finland Province (Finnish: Keski-Suomen lääni, Swedish: Mellersta Finlands län) was a province of Finland from 1960 to 1997. The area of the Central Finland Province was the same as the area of Central Finland region.


The Central Finland Province was established in 1960 when it was separated from the Vaasa Province. Minor parts of Häme Province, Kuopio Province and Mikkeli Province were also merged to the new province. In 1997 it was reunited with Vaasa and together with the northern part of the Häme Province and the Turku and Pori Province it was merged into the new Western Finland Province.
