Chairman’s Message


On behalf of the 10 member leagues along with their Presidents and Commissioners, welcome to another season of Junior A hockey in the Canadian Junior Hockey League.

Clearly this is an unprecedented time after our season ended on March 13 with the world in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.

As we work together with Hockey Canada and it’s members, our provincial authorities and municipal partners, CJHL teams and leagues are endeavouring to return to play in each community when it is safe to do so for our players, team personnel, families and fans.

When that day comes across Canada, we will know that everyone has done their part to make our great game accessible to everyone.

Inclusiveness always has been a part of our fabric and as 2020 turns into 2021 our priorities will continue to be on providing a safe, secure environment for all and ensuring the best possible community for us to embrace this new world together.

Chairman of the Board
