Canoe Narrows is a First Nations community located in northern Saskatchewan on Canoe Lake approximately thirty miles west of Beauval, within ancient hunting grounds of the Woodland Cree.

The population in 2011 was 716 people[4]

Bordering Canoe Narrows to the east is the village of Jans Bay with a population of 187.[4] Bordering Canoe Narrows to the west is the village of Cole Bay with a population of 230.

Commercial fishing was the community's original means of support; however, fish populations have diminished somewhat since the late 1970s. The community has since turned to forestry as its main industry.

The village is the administrative centre of the Canoe Lake First Nation and is affiliated with the Meadow Lake Tribal Council.

The registered population of the Canoe Lake Cree First Nation was 2217 on February, 2013. There were 982 members living on reserve and 1235 members living off reserve. [5] The Canoe Lake Cree Nation has seven locations with three on Canoe Lake.[6]
