Canadian Amp is a 2001 EP by Neko Case.

The recording features Case performing four covers of material by Canadian songwriters, along with a Hank Williams cover, a traditional folk song and two original songs written by Case (one of which was in collaboration with The Sadies).

Guest musicians include Andrew Bird, Jon Rauhouse, Kelly Hogan, Brett Sparks and Chris Von Sneidern.

The disc was originally a tour-only release; however, it later received wider circulation.
