This page is for the defunct British Columbia provincial electoral district named North Okanagan. For towns in and other information on the North Okanagan region, please see Okanagan. For the federal and provincial electoral districts named Okanagan North and other electoral districts in the Okanagan, see Okanagan (electoral districts).

North Okanagan was the name of a provincial electoral district in the Canadian province of British Columbia beginning with the election of 1916. Following the 1975 election boundary revisions accompanied the riding's renaming to Okanagan North. The riding was originally part of the Yale riding until 1890, and when first that riding was broken up the Okanagan was in Yale-East (1894–1900), and then in Okanagan (1903–1912). Both North Okanagan and South Okanagan were created in advance of the 1916 election.
