The Canyon River begins at Favel Lake, just east of the community of Jones and Ontario Highway 671, and heads east out of the lake at the settlement of Favel into the long Canyon Lake, which extends east-west for 20 kilometres (12 mi). It takes in the right tributary Shrub Creek at the lake, upon which the settlements of Canyon and McIntosh are located. The river heads out of Canyon Lake at Outlet Bay, heads over several waterfalls including Sixty Two Foot Falls, and reaches its mouth at the Canyon Stretch on the Wabigoon River. From Favel Lake to the eastern tip of Canyon Lake, the river is paralleled by the Canadian National Railway transcontinental main line; Via Rail transcontinental Canadian trains travel on the line and stop at Canyon railway station.
