Pavlodar Region (Kazakh: Павлодар облысы, romanized: Pavlodar oblysy; Russian: Павлодарская область, romanizedPavlodarskaya oblast) is a region of Kazakhstan. The population of the region was 742,475 (2009 Census results);[4] and 806,983 (1999 Census results).[4]; the latest official estimate (as at the start of 2018) was 754,739.[5] Its capital is the city of Pavlodar, which had a population of 360,014 at the start of 2018.[6]

Pavlodar borders Russia (Altai Krai, Omsk Oblast and Novosibirsk Oblast) to the north, and also borders the following Kazakh regions: Akmola (to the west), East Kazakhstan (to the south-east), North Kazakhstan (to the north-west), and Karaganda (to the south). Many people, especially Ukrainians, migrated to Pavlodar in Nikita Khrushchev's Virgin Lands Campaign.

The Irtysh River flows from the Altay Mountains in China to Russia through the region; the Irtysh–Karaganda Canal crosses the western part of the region, taking some of the river's water to Ekibastuz and Karaganda.

Bayanaul National Park is located in the region within 100 km of Ekibastuz.
