History[edit]

Tiassalé Department upon its creation in 1988. It kept these boundaries until 2012, but other subdivision boundary changes began to be made in 1995.

Tiassalé Department was created in 1988 as a first-level subdivision via a split-off from Abidjan Department.[3]

In 1997, regions were introduced as new first-level subdivisions of Ivory Coast; as a result, all departments were converted into second-level subdivisions. Tiassalé Department was included in Lagunes Region.

In 2011, districts were introduced as new first-level subdivisions of Ivory Coast. At the same time, regions were reorganised and became second-level subdivisions and all departments were converted into third-level subdivisions. At this time, Tiassalé Department became part of Agnéby-Tiassa Region in Lagunes District.

In 2012, two sub-prefectures were split from Tiassalé Department to create Taabo Department.[4]
