Is canning is a method of preservation?

Food preservation is the activity or process of keeping edible items such as fruits and vegetables free from damage or decay and to increase the life of the food product by preventing the growth of 'microorganisms', as well as slowing the oxidation of fats that cause rancidity.

The nutritive value, flavour, and colour of the preserved foods remain unharmed. 

Yes, Canning is a food preservation method in which we do heating and sealing of the food in containers so that micro-organisms get destroyed that cause food to spoil

During the heating process of the can, the air is driven out of the jar, and as it cools a vacuum seal is formed.
