There certainly are adapters, but the ones that retain infinity focus are not at all worth using. the optics in them greatly degrade the image. Caon made an FD to EOS adapter but it was specifically for some of the super telephotos, and if you can find one today, they are pretty expensive, and still not a great trade-off.
Now, you can use a mechanical adapter (no optics) but you will lose infinity focus. If you are looking for macro and close-up only, this may be a fun and cheap way to experiment.
Mechanical adapters are also available to mate older Nikkor F-mount glass to Canon EOS. It works great, retains infinity focus, and no optics to degrade the image.
