The Archdeacon of Canterbury is an office-holder in the Diocese of Canterbury in the Church of England. Like other archdeacons, he or she is an administrator in the diocese at large (having oversight of parishes in roughly half the diocese) and is a Canon Residentiary of the cathedral.

Furthermore, the Archdeacon of Canterbury has an additional role beyond that of other archdeacons, traditionally serving as the Archbishop of Canterbury's representative at enthronement ceremonies for new diocesan bishops in his province. At these services, he or she reads the Archbishop's mandate and, taking the new bishop by the hand, conducts him on to his throne.

The present incumbent is Sheila Watson.
