Replacing the National Women's Under-18 Championship every four years, the Canada Winter Games highlights the future of the women's game in a province vs. province showdown for a gold medal. Women’s hockey was added to the schedule beginning with the 1991 Games in Charlottetown, P.E.I., when Hayley Wickenheiser scored the gold-medal-winning goal for Alberta as a 12-year-old, giving a glimpse of what was to come during a record-setting career with Canada’s National Women’s Team.

Ontario (4G 1S 1B), Quebec (1G 3S 3B) and Alberta (2G 0S 2B) have dominated the medal count, winning 17 of the 21 medals awarded. The women’s hockey tournament has produced an impressive roster of alumnae – of the 21 players who won gold at the 2014 Olympic Winter Games, 15 made an appearance at the Canada Winter Games.
