Équateur is one of the 25 provinces of the Democratic Republic of the Congo under the 2006 Constitution. Along with the provinces of Nord-Ubangi, Mongala, Sud-Ubangi and Tshuapa, it was formed from the pre-2006 province of Équateur. The capital of Équateur Province is the city of Mbandaka.


The post-2006 Équateur province is itself a former province known as Cuvette-Centrale, having first separated from the former Équateur region in 1962. Léon Engulu served as the only president (later, governor) of Cuvette-Centrale from 1962-1966, when the province was reincorporated into the recreated Équateur province by the Mobutu regime.
