Diekirch is a canton in Luxembourg consisting of 10 communes. Neither the canton, town, or commune of Grevenmacher should be confused with the former district of Diekirch, one of three administrative units in Luxembourg abolished in October 2015.

Communes within the canton, include:

In January 2006 Diekirch ceded the commune of Bastendorf, and its 24.44 km² of land to the adjoining canton of Vianden. Bastendorf subsequently merged with the small town of Fouhren to become the commune of Tandel.
