The Canarian Coalition (Spanish: Coalición Canaria, CC) is a nationalist and liberal party in the Canary Isles of Spain. The coalition was formed in 1993 uniting various Nationalist, Conservative, ex-Communist and Independent parties or groupings under one banner. It has governed the Canary Islands since 1993 when it replaced the former PSOE administration after a censure motion. It also governs the local administrations of Tenerife, La Palma and Fuerteventura as well as having majority control in most of the town councils on the Canary Isles.

In the Cortes Generales, it has 2 deputies, and 5 senators, making it the largest Canarian party. It usually negotiates with the plurality party at the Cortes to form a majority in exchange of resources for the islands.
