Claude C. Robinson (December 17, 1881 - June 27, 1976) was a Canadian hockey executive.

Born in Harriston, Ontario, Robinson moved to Winnipeg at an early age. He joined the Winnipeg Victorias, first as a player and later as an executive. This club brought both the Allan Cup and Stanley Cup to Winnipeg, while he was associated with it.

Robinson pushed for the formation of a national association to compete for amateur hockey championships, and became the first secretary when the Canadian Amateur Hockey Association was formed in 1914. He managed the Canadian team at the 1932 Winter Olympics, which were played at Lake Placid, New York.

He was inducted into the International Hockey Hall of Fame in 1947 and the Canadian Olympic Hall of Fame in 1960. Robinson died in Vancouver at the age of 84.
