In 1923, Kazanka Raion of Kryvyi Rih Okruha, with the administrative center in Kazanka, was established as part of Yekaterinoslav Governorate. In 1925, the governorates were abolished, and okruhas were directly subordinated to Ukrainian SSR. In 1930, okruhas were abolished, and on 27 February 1932, Dnipropetrovsk Oblast was established, and Kazanka Raion was included into Dnipropetrovsk Oblast. On 22 September 1937, Mykolaiv Oblast was established on lands which previously belonged to Dnipropetrovsk and Odessa Oblasts, and Kazanka Raion became part of newly created Mykolaiv Oblast. In 1967, Kazanka was granted urban-type settlement status.
