Kanaker (Armenian: Քանաքեռ; also Romanized as K’anak’err, Kenaker, Kanaker, and Qanaqer) was a town in Armenia to the north-east of the capital Yerevan. With the urban development, the village was gradually absorbed by the capital Yerevan thus becoming part of the Kanaker-Zeytun district.

Many prominent Armenians are natives of Kanaker such as the writer and educator Khachatur Abovian and the composer Djivan Gasparyan.

The town was home to many churches that were severely damaged during the earthquake of 1679. The Russian Orthodox Church of the Intercession of the Holy Mother of God was built in Kanaker in 1912.

Kanaker played a key role in the Russian siege of Yerevan in 1827.
