Heim is new municipality in Trøndelag county, Norway that will be established on 1 January 2020. It is going to be located in the traditional district of Fosen. The administrative centre of the municipality will be the village of Kyrksæterøra.

The municipality will be formed by the merger of the neighboring municipalities of Hemne and Halsa as well as the Ytre Snillfjord area in the municipality of Snillfjord. The municipality of Halsa will leave Møre og Romsdal county and switch to Trøndelag county when the merger occurs.[2][3]


The parish of Heim was established in 1884. It is named after the old Heim farm (Old Norse: Heimr), since the church is built on its ground. The name is identical with the word heimr which means "home", "homestead", or "farm".[4]
