The Province of Canterbury, also called the Southern Province, is one of two ecclesiastical provinces making up the Church of England. (The other is the Province of York.) It consists of 30 dioceses, covering roughly the southern two-thirds of England, along with the Channel Islands, the Falkland Islands, a few parishes in Wales, and the mainland of Europe.

Before the Church in Wales was disestablished in 1920, the province also included all of Wales. Between 787 and 803 the province was divided to form a third province, the Province of Lichfield.

The province's metropolitan bishop is the Archbishop of Canterbury.
