The Province of Uusimaa (Finnish: Uudenmaan lääni, Swedish: Nylands län) was a province of Finland from 1831 to 1997.

It was established in 1831, when the County of Nyland and Tavastehus was divided into the Häme Province and Uusimaa Province.

In 1997 it was merged with the Kymi Province and the southern parts of the Häme Province into the new Southern Finland Province.
