George Ricardo Codrington (26 November 1966, Barbados) is a Canadian cricketer who has played in 5 ODIs from 17 May 2006 to 21 August 2006. On his debut, he top scored for Canada with 45 not out against Bermuda. He also appeared in the 2005 ICC Trophy in Ireland. He is a right-hand batsman and right-arm medium-fast bowler. He was made captain of the Canadian team for their matches in South Africa in late 2006 owing to the absence of usual captain John Davison.

Codrington has taken a coaching position for the Women's national cricket team.

After captaining Barbados in an inter-island under 21 competition in the West Indies, George Codrington first travelled to England in 1986 as part of a Viv Richards scholarship with Curtly Ambrose and Samuel Skeete.
