The 2022 Bunnings NPC season is the seventeenth season of New Zealand's provincial rugby union competition, the National Provincial Championship, since it turned professional in 2006. It involves the top fourteen provincial rugby unions of New Zealand, which – under a new format introduced in 2022 – will all be playing for the same title for the first time since the 2010 season. For sponsorship reasons, the competition is known as the Bunnings NPC. The regular season begins on Friday 5 August 2022, when Manawatū hosts Canterbury. The Final is scheduled for Saturday 22 October 2022.
