History[edit | edit source]

The present municipality has the same territory as the one instituted in 1863, when the municipal system was implemented in Sweden. Between 1974 and 1983 it became a part of Vännäs Municipality. The split in 1983 made Bjurholm the least populated of all Swedish municipalities.
