An arrondissement of Haiti (French: arrondissement d'Haïti, pronounced [aʁɔ̃dismɑ̃ d‿aiti]; Haitian Creole: awondisman Ayiti) is a level of administrative division in Haiti.

As of 2015, the 10 departments of Haiti were divided into 42 arrondissements.[1]

Arrondissements are further divided into communes and communal sections.

The term arrondissement can be roughly translated into English as district.[2] A more etymologically precise, but less allegorical, definition would be encirclements, from the French arrondir, to encircle.[3] Because no single translation adequately conveys the layered sense of the word, the French term is usually used in English writing.

The Arrondissements are listed below, by department:
