Ravinder "Ravi" Kahlon (born May 15, 1979 in Victoria, British Columbia) is a Canadian field hockey player.

Kahlon earned his first international senior cap for the Men's National Team in 2000 against Malaysia in Brussels. He began playing field hockey as a defender in the Victoria League at age twelve; he was selected to the Junior National Team in 1999 and was named team captain. Kahlon was a student at Camosun College in Victoria.

Eventually competing at every level of international competition, Kahlon's career would include playing three times in World Cup Qualifying tournaments, representing Canada at the Commonwealth Games and Pan American Games, and culminating with a tenth-place finish at the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing. In 2013, with many of his family and friends on hand, Ravi was inducted into the Delta Sports Hall of Fame.[1]

In October 2016, Ravi Kahlon announced he would be declaring his candidacy for the BC NDP nomination in Delta North. He defeated incumbent Scott Hamilton.[2]
