The Kanije Eyalet (Ottoman Turkish: ایالت كانیژه; Eyālet-i Kānīžê; Modern Turkish: Kanije Eyaleti; Hungarian: Kanizsai ejálet; Croatian: Kaniški ejalet) was an administrative unit of the Ottoman Empire formed in 1600 and existing until the collapse of Ottoman rule in Central Europe after 1686 (nominally to 1699).
The province of Kanije was established in 1600 after the town of Kanije was captured from Habsburgs. This newly conquered area was joined with territory of Zigetvar Province, which was formed in 1596 from some sanjaks of Budin Province (which had been expanded as a result of the Ottoman territorial gains during the Long War) and Bosnia Province. The Kanije Eyalet existed until the capture of Kanije by Habsburg Monarchy in 1690. It was formally ceded to Habsburg Monarchy by the Treaty of Karlowitz in 1699.
