The 35-year-old's new deal will keep him at La Mestalla until 2007.
The Spanish international has established himself as one of the best goalkeepers in the world and played an instrumental part in helping Valencia to the Spanish tile and Uefa Cup last season.
Valencia coach Claudio Ranieri was delighted to be keeping Canizares at the club.
"I am very pleased because Canizares continues with us," said Ranieri.
"I have three good goalkeepers in the squad with Santi, (Andres) Palop and the young (Ludovic) Butelle."
Valencia are also hoping to tie up a deal for reserve keeper Palop.
The former Villarreal ace has been in talks for the last week and he is expected to put pen-to-paper on his new contract in the next few days.
