The location of Alpha Carinae on the tactical situation monitor

Alpha Carinae was the primary of its star system.

In 2293, Alpha Carinae's location in the Milky Way Galaxy was labeled in the star chart "The Explored Galaxy", which was on display in Captain James T. Kirk's quarters aboard the USS Enterprise-A. (Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country okudagram)

In 2366, in an alternate timeline, during the Federation-Klingon War, the location of Alpha Carinae was labeled on a tactical situation monitor in the ready room aboard the USS Enterprise-D. (TNG: "Yesterday's Enterprise" okudagram)

In 2367, the location of Alpha Carinae was labeled on a tactical situation monitor in Captain Benjamin Maxwell's ready room on the USS Phoenix. (TNG: "The Wounded" okudagram)

In the canonical Star Trek universe, Canopus and Alpha Carinae were depicted as two distinct stars, with their own solar systems. This was contrary to the real word universe, in which Canopus and Alpha Carinae were the names for the same star.
According to Star Trek: Star Charts (pg. 65). Canopus (or Alpha Carinae) was a star located in the Canopus system. This system was located in or near Federation space, in the Beta Quadrant, in the late 24th century. The primary, Canopus, was an F-class star with a magnitude of -1, which was a hundred times brighter than Sol.
For Star Trek: First Contact, Alex Jaeger created a ship size comparison chart for Industrial Light & Magic. On this chart, one of the names considered for the Norway-class starship was the USS Canopus. [1]
