The 26-year-old will return to Wales five years after leaving Scarlets for the Aviva Premiership club.
“I’m excited to be joining the Ospreys and starting a new chapter in my career when I return to Wales,” North said.
Blues and Dragons had also shown interest in signing the player, who has won 73 Wales and three British and Irish Lions caps.
