Kito Poblah (born September 18, 1987 in Montreal, Quebec) is a Canadian football wide receiver who is currently a free agent. He most recently played for the BC Lions of the Canadian Football League.

He was drafted by the Blue Bombers with the team forfeiting a first-round 2012 CFL Draft pick to do so and signed a contract with the team on June 4, 2011.[1][2] He played college football with the Central Michigan Chippewas.
