Kivalliq Region (Inuktitut syllabics: ᑭᕙᓪᓕᖅ) is an administrative region of Nunavutmarker, Canadamarker. It consists of the portion of the mainland to the west of Hudson Baymarker together with Southampton Islandmarker and Coats Islandmarker. The regional seat is Rankin Inletmarker (pop. 2,358).

Before 1999, Kivalliq Region existed under slightly different boundaries as Keewatin Region, Northwest Territories. Although the Kivalliq name became official in 1999, Statistics Canada has continued to refer to the area as Keewatin Region, Nunavut in publications such as the Census. Most references to the area as "Keewatin" have generally been phased out by Nunavut-based bodies, as that name was originally rooted in a region of northwestern Ontario, and only saw application onto Inuit-inhabited lands because of the boundaries of the now-defunct District of Keewatin.
