Can a canvas app access an entity from another environment?

I was just wondering if this was possible. So if my canvas app is in environment 1 can it access entities from environment 2?

To the best of my knowledge you cannot cross an environment boundary using Power Apps.

Yes you can, if you have access to entities in environment 2.

 

From the app in environment 1, add a new data source, by default it shows entitities from current CDS, click the 3 dots to change the environment and it will then list all the entities you have access to from environment 2.
