An agglomeration community (French: communauté d'agglomération) is a metropolitan government structure in France, created by the Chevènement Law of 1999. It is one of three forms of intercommunality, less integrated than an urban community but more integrated than a community of communes. Agglomeration communities consist of a commune of at least 15,000 inhabitants (or a prefecture with less than 15,000 inhabitants) and its independent suburbs.

As of January 1, 2009, there are 174 agglomeration communities in France (167 in metropolitan France and 7 in the overseas departments), with a combined population of 21.0 million inhabitants. The population (as of 2006 census) of the agglomeration communities ranges from 406,140 inhabitants (Agglomeration community of Montpellier Agglomération) to 28,372 inhabitants (Agglomeration community of the Pays de Flers).
