Tshopo is one of the 21 new provinces of the Democratic Republic of the Congo created in the 2015 repartitioning. It is situated in the north central part of the country on the Tshopo River, for which it is named.

Tshopo, Bas-Uele, Haut-Uele, and Ituri provinces are the result of the dismemberment of the former Orientale province.[2] Tshopo was formed from the Tshopo district and the independently administered city of Kisangani which retained its status as a provincial capital.

The 2020 population was estimated to be 2,829,700.[3]
