The Lichfield Canal Aqueduct is a potentially navigable aqueduct built to carry the future Lichfield Canal over the M6 Toll Motorway, just to the west of Lichfield and north of Birmingham, England.

Restoration was threatened by the construction of the M6 Toll motorway around the north of Birmingham, which cut across the canal's route.
