Canton uppfann en metod att framställa konstgjorda magneter utan hjälp av naturliga och bestämde mängden av den i leidenflaskan samlade elektriciteten. När den nya gregorianska kalendern infördes i England 1752, uppställde Canton lättfattliga regler för beräkning av skottår med mera. Genom sin 1753 utgivna avhandling Electrical experiments, with an attempt to account for their several phenomena visade han, samtidigt med Franklin, att några moln är positivt, andra negativt elektriskt laddade.
