At the beginning, Cần Đước was a small village located in a peninsula created by the Muong Ong Quynh and Rach Ben Ba distributary. In 1698, the present-day Cần Đước belonged to fort Phien Tran. In 1808, it belonged to the town of Phien An. In 13th year of Minh Mạng (1832), Cần Đước became part of Phuoc Loc county, phu (old subdivision of a province but larger than a county) Tân An, Gia Dinh province. In 1867, Cần Đước became a county itself when Phuoc Loc became a phu. In 1871, Phuc Loc was merged into Cho Lon province.

Located in center of Gò Công, Can Giuoc, and Saigon, Cần Đước is a major rice growing area. It became a major stronghold for Truong Dinh's guerrilla campaign in southern Vietnam. This campaign is one of the earliest rebellions against the French invasion in defiance of Emperor Tự Đức. Emperor Tự Đức signed the Treaty of Saigon, ceding the three southern provinces of Gia Dinh, Dinh Tuong and Biên Hòa to France. They became the colony of Cochinchina. Truong Dinh refused to recognise the treaty and continued guerrilla attacks against French patrols and their Vietnamese collaborators. During this time, many Cần Đước natives became part of the guerrilla leadership. Thong binh duong Bui Quan Dieu, who command the famous battle of Can Giouc, is from Cần Đước. Nguyen Van Tien, another Can Duoc native, led several groups of guerrilla in the area. He was later captured and killed by the French. After the death of Truong Dinh on August 19, 1864, Can Duoc became part of another guerrilla campaign against the French authority which was led by Nguyen Trung Truc.

In the early 20th century, Cần Đước became part of many nationalist movements such as Thiên Địa Hội or Nguyễn An Ninh society.

After the end of the First Indochina War, Cần Đước became a county part of the Cho Lon province in 1954 under the new state of South Vietnam. In 1956, Tân An and part of Cho Lon separated into a new province called Long An. Cần Đước then became a county part of the Long An province. The government divided Cần Đước into two districts: Cần Đước and Rach Kien.

After the end of the Second Indochina War (Vietnam War), Cần Đước restored its original boundaries, as it is today.
