Canada Dock was a railway station on the Liverpool Overhead Railway, situated sixteen feet above street level adjacent to the dock, and LNWR station of the same name. The station was intended for transatlantic passengers, though the dock became a centre for timber trading.

It was opened on 6 March 1893 by the Marquis of Salisbury. During the December 1940 Liverpool Blitz the station received heavy damage, including a direct hit to track close to the station.

The station closed, along with the rest of the line on 30 December 1956, and the whole line and stations were demolished a year later. Nothing remains of the station.
