"Are all Canon lenses interchangeable on all Canon DSL's?"

Thanks for asking if all Canon Lenses Fit on all Canon Cameras. 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. There were two types of Canon lenses to familiarize yourself with and they're more common. Here's the full post on the Canon Geek website: Ef and EF-S Lenses.

Now that mirrorless cameras are becoming very popular, you should know about All Lens Compatibility. Here's the updated Canon Compatibility Guide.


Canon EF and EF-S Lens mounts


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.

I shot a short video on this exact topic, published it on Youtube, and have received a lot of comments that it was helpful. I think you find it very helpful in understanding the compatibility of Canon lens interchangeability. Canon Lens Interchangeability.

Here are diagrams that show you why all Canon lenses are not compatible with all Canon DSLR cameras:
