Canton (Welsh: Treganna) is an inner-city area of west Cardiff, Wales.

The name (from "St. Canna's Town") refers to the 6th century female saint after whom Pontcanna is also named. Canton, also known as Treganna (tref town + Saint Canna), was a 13th century manor in Llandaff. It became part of Cardiff in 1875.

Today
Canton is one of the most multi-cultural areas of Cardiff, but it is inhabited mostly by caucasians.

The main road through the district is Cowbridge Road East, a busy thoroughfare with many discount shops as well as pubs and restaurants. Canton is home to Thompson's Park and Victoria Park, to the education centre Llanover Hall, and to the Chapter Arts Centre, which is housed in a former school.

Schools include Lansdowne Primary School, Thompsons Primary School and Fitzalan High School. It also has a respectable library, Canton Library.

Government
The electoral ward of Canton is located in the constituency of Cardiff West. It is bounded by Fairwater and Ely to the north; Riverside and Grangetown to the east; the Vale of Glamorgan to the south; and Caerau to the west.

Local people
Famous residents include singer Charlotte Church, while John Toshack attended Radnor Road and Canton High Schools.
