Canfield is a suburban city located in Mahoning County, Ohio, United States, at the intersection of U.S. Route 224 and State Route 46/U.S. Route 62, about ten miles southwest of Youngstown. The population was 7,515 at the 2010 census. It is part of the Youngstown-Warren-Boardman, OH-PA Metropolitan Statistical Area. In 2005 Canfield was rated the 82nd best place to live in the United States by Money magazine.
In 1992, Canfield city residents, although surrounded completely by Canfield Township, voted to secede from the township. This motion created two separate governmental entities — one a municipality, the other a township, which continue to operate together in many respects. An example of this is mutual fire protection service, communications with each other with respect to roads and highways, and the physical assets of both (schools, parks, etc.).

Canfield is a suburb of Youngstown, with strict zoning regulations that prohibit large signage and overgrown lawns. Some consider it to be the most affluent suburb of Youngstown. A tree-lined "Village Green" sits at the heart of the New England-style village, which resembles many communities established in the days of the Connecticut Western Reserve. The town center is a venue for a wide range of community activities.
Canfield continues to grow: new housing developments have been built throughout the city and adjacent Canfield Township, providing a stark contrast to the homes and buildings in the central city, much of which are well over a century old (Canfield was Mahoning County's original seat before it was moved to Youngstown in 1876). While the growth is embraced by the city, it is also gobbling up the family farms and bucolic countryside that the village was once known for.
The Canfield Fairgrounds have existed at their present location on State Route 46 in Canfield since 1851. Every year in late August/early September for six days the Canfield Fair ("Ohio's Largest Fair") takes place at the Canfield Fairgrounds.
Canfield is served by a branch of the Public Library of Youngstown and Mahoning County.
