Canterbury Falls is a 9-metre ribbon waterfall that flows year round in Ancaster in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada.

Nearby attractions include the Old Mill Restaurant, retail and convenience stores, the Dundas Valley Conservation Area, Bruce Trail, Sherman Falls, Canterbury Hills Conference Centre and Church Camp.

Little Canterbury Falls is a slim 4-metre-high (13 ft) cascade waterfall that flows just east of Canterbury Falls. Best viewed in the springtime as it tends to dry up in the summer months.


By foot can be accessed via the Bruce Trail near the Dundas Valley Conservation Area.

From Highway 403, take the Lincoln M. Alexander Parkway exit and keep to the right to merge onto Rousseau Street. Stay on it until the end. At the 'T' intersection, turn right onto Wilson Street. Then turn left onto Montgomery Road and turn right at the stop sign onto Old Dundas Road. At the 3-way Stop intersection, go straight onto Lions Club Road and park on the gravel shoulder. On the opposite side of the road, follow the Bruce Trail southwest to the second wooden bridge (about a 15 - 20 minute walk). The waterfall is beside this bridge.
