Canadice Lake /ˈkænəds/ is one of the minor Finger Lakes of western New York in the USA.

Canadice Lake has a shoreline 6.5 miles (10 km) long and a maximum depth of 95 feet (29 m). Because the lake is a water source of Rochester, New York, no houses are permitted on its shore and boats are limited to 16 feet in length and a maximum of 10HP engine power. Swimming, camping and contamination of the water are prohibited, and a permit (available for free online or at a kiosk at the north end of Hemlock Lake) is required to fish or boat on the lake.
