Annerveenschekanaal is a village in the Dutch province of Drenthe. It is a part of the municipality of Aa en Hunze, and lies about 18 km east of Assen.
The statistical area "Annerveenschekanaal", which can also include the surrounding countryside, has a population of around 420.
The village was founded around 1770, when its name was Annerveensche Compagnie.
The village is on the Grevelingskanaal, and together with the smaller village of Eexterveenschekanaal forms part of the protected historic area Rijksbeschermd gezicht Annerveenschekanaal/Eexterveenschekanaal. In recent years the old swing bridges crossing the canal have been restored to their original condition and tours are available.
