Bjørnør is a former municipality in Sør-Trøndelag county, Norway. It encompassed the present-day municipalities of Roan and Osen, plus the Stoksund area in present-day Åfjord, all in the western part of the Fosen peninsula.[1] The municipality bordered Aafjord in the south and Nordre Trondhjem county to the north and west.


The municipality of Bjørnør was established on 1 January 1838 (see formannskapsdistrikt). On 1 June 1892, Bjørnør ceased to exist when it was split into three new municipalities: Osen (population: 1,575), Roan (population: 2,069), and Stoksund (population: 1,122).[2]
