The Kananaskis River is a mountain river in western Alberta, Canada.
It is a tributary of the Bow River, crossing the length of Kananaskis Country.
The Kananaskis originates in the Canadian Rockies, east of the continental divide, in Peter Lougheed Provincial Park. It flows southeast to the Upper Kananaskis Lake, then turns north into the Lower Kananaskis Lake. From here it has a northbound course on the border of Spray Valley Provincial Park and Elbow-Sheep Wildland Provincial Park, where the Kananaskis Trail follows its itinerary. The lower course flows through Bow Valley Provincial Park, where Barrier Lake is formed along the river.
Barrier Lake is an artificial lake used for hydroelectric power generation.
The Kananaskis merges into the Bow River at Seebe, 30 km east of Canmore.
The Kananaskis River has a total length of 74 kilometers (46 mi).

Three dams, built in 1955, control the river’s rate of flow: Interlakes, Pocaterra, and Barrier, all three of which are remotely controlled and operated by TransAlta.
