Bloorview Kids Rehab is Canada's largest children's rehabilitation hospital. It is located in Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It was founded in 1899, by a group of community-minded women who met in Toronto to discuss the creation of a "Home for Incurable Children".

As of 2005, the Centre provides hospital care, outpatient clinics, an integrated kindergarten school programme, assistive technology services and community outreach activities to about 7,000 children and youth with disabilities and their families each year. The most common conditions are cerebral palsy, acquired brain injury, muscular dystrophy, amputation, epilepsy, spina bifida, cleft lip and cleft palate, and a range of developmental disabilities including autism. It is associated with the Faculty of Medicine at the University of Toronto.

Prior to 2006, the centre was called the Bloorview MacMillan Children's Centre.
