Louis Jani (born December 6, 1957 in Montreal, Quebec) is a judoka from Canada, who represented his native country at two consecutive Summer Olympics: 1984 and 1988. He had unfortunately missed the 1980 Moscow Olympics due to Canada's boycott. Louis twice won the gold medal at the Pan American Games (1979 and 1983) in the middleweight division (– 86 kg). Competing as a member of Team Canada for 15 years, Louis went on to become the Technical Director for Judo Canada and eventually the National Coach. As National Coach he led the Canadian team at the 2000 Olympic Summer Games in Sydney, Australia, where Nicolas Gill won a silver medal. Currently Louis Jani lives in Ottawa, Ontario and works as a Senior Policy Officer for Sport Canada.
