Canadian, Texas

Welcome to Canadian, Texas – the Heart of Hemphill County

Canadian is approximately 100 miles from Amarillo, 200 miles from Oklahoma City, 220 miles from Lubbock, and 330 miles from Ft. Worth. The City of Canadian is located along the Canadian River Valley in the northeast portion of the Texas Panhandle along US Highway 60. Canadian is the County seat of Hemphill County and is known as the “Oasis of the High Plains”. While much of the Panhandle region is generally flat and devoted to ranching and agriculture, Canadian’s topography is unique. The area has mesas, hills, and beautiful foliage that attracts visitors from across Texas during the fall season.

Canadian is a city founded upon uniqueness in the quality of life that our citizens enjoy and the positive environment in which our local businesses can prosper. 

Vision Statement

“Rooted in the Canadian River Valley, Canadian is a community where families, businesses, and education are valued. Canadian is the destination for arts, culture, and outdoor activities.”
