The first complete chloroplast genome (cpDNA) sequence of Canarium album was determined from Illumina HiSeq pair-end sequencing data in this study. The cpDNA is 163,347 bp in length, contains a large single-copy (LSC) region of 87,838 bp and a small single-copy (SSC) region of 13,935 bp, which were separated by a pair of inverted repeats (IRs) regions of 30,787 bp. The genome contains 129 genes, including 84 protein-coding genes, 8 ribosomal RNA genes, and 37 transfer RNA genes. The overall guanine-cytosine (GC) content of the whole genome is 37.5%, and the corresponding values of the LSC, SSC, and IR regions are 35.8%, 32.6%, and 41.1%, respectively. Further, phylogenomic analysis showed that C. album clustered together with Boswellia sacra.
