I'm assuming your question is about Canon DSLR cameras, but you should also know that there are now lenses with different mounts for Canon mirrorless cameras too.

EF LENSES. EF lenses will fit both the full frame Canon cameras as well as the smaller APS-C "crop" Canon cameras. In general, Canon EF lenses are bigger and more expensive.
EF-S LENSES. EF-S lenses will only fit the smaller Canon crop sensor DSLR cameras.
