Canaan (カナーン [canaan] in Japanese) is a fairly big town on the floating continent in Final Fantasy III. Its country affiliation is unknown, it could be either independent, part of the kingdom of Argus to the west, or part of the kingdom of Sasune to the north. It is located close to the shore of the inner sea, south of the Parmeni Mountains and a little north-west of Mt Genora.

There's nothing particularly noteworthy about Canaan, aside from it being home to the ex-adventurer and mechanic Cid Haze, (re-)inventor of the airship. During the game, the Warriors of Light visit the town several times in their dealings with Cid, as well as the local girl Salina who fell in love with an amnesiac man she took in and nursed to health.
Later on in the game after using Mognet enough, Cid sends the Warriors a letter about the monster in his basement. The Warriors dutifully come defeat it, and gain orichalcum for their troubles, as well as knowledge about the Legendary Smith.

Canaan in the real world refers to the lands which were inhabited by biblical (pre- and post-Jewish) tribes who originally worshiped many gods, and included such nations as Israel and Phoenicia. It served as a battleground for the great empires which surrounded the region, including Egypt and Assyria.
