History[edit]

In February 1993 the arrondissement of Noisiel was created from parts of the arrondissements of Melun (cantons of Roissy-en-Brie and Pontault-Combault) and Meaux (cantons of Claye-Souilly, Lagny-sur-Marne, Torcy, Vaires-sur-Marne, Champs-sur-Marne and Noisiel.[3][4] Torcy replaced Noisiel as subprefecture in April 1994.[3][5] At the January 2017 reorganisation of the arrondissements of Seine-et-Marne, it received seven communes from the arrondissement of Melun, and it lost five communes to the arrondissement of Meaux and two communes to the arrondissement of Provins.[6] In August 2018 the communes Villeneuve-le-Comte and Villeneuve-Saint-Denis passed from the arrondissement of Provins to the arrondissement of Torcy.[7][8]

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 Torcy were, as of January 2015:[9]
