Dzhankoy Raion (Ukrainian: Джанкойський район, Russian: Джанкойский район, Crimean Tatar: Canköy rayonı) is one of the 25 regions of Crimea, currently subject to a territorial dispute between the Russian Federation and Ukraine. Population: 74,131 (2013 est.)[1].

It is located in the northern part of the Crimean steppe near the Syvash Bay. The city of Dzhankoy is the raion's administrative centre, but it is excluded from the region and forms a separate municipality. The North-Crimean canal (the main waterway of northern Crimea supplying the republic with water from the Dnieper river) runds through the raion.
