Canik is one of the main municipalities in Samsun, Turkey, located at the east of the city center. The Municipality had 89.753 inhabitants as of the 2009 census.[2]

Canik became one of the four town municipalities under the patronage of Samsun Metropolitan Municipality in 1994. The region was largely settled by middle and lower working-class people in those days, but recent years made a big impact in the local economy. In 2009, Canik's status changed with other Metropolitan areas Ilkadim, Atakum and Tekkekoy, and it was turned into a borough instead of a small town.


It is located on the north, Black Sea coast of Turkey.
