Northern Division, Fiji
Map of Fiji showing Northern division.

The Northern Division is one of four Divisions into which Fiji's fourteen Provinces are grouped for local government purposes. The administrative centre of the Division, where main governmental departments are located, is Labasa.

The Northern Division covers three Provinces: Macuata, Cakaudrove, and Bua, and includes the entire island of Vanua Levu. This is based on the decisions of the traditional Fijian Provinces, as well as administrative considerations. Excluding the Lau Islands, which form part of the Eastern Division, the Northern Division is coextensive with the Tovata Confederacy.

Notable Fijian leaders from the Northern Division include Ratu Sir Penaia Ganilau, the first President of the Fijian republic (1987-1993). Former Prime Minister Sitiveni Rabuka is also from the Northern Division.
