The 1970 World Ice Hockey Championships was the 37th edition of the Ice Hockey World Championships. 21 nations participated in three different divisions or pools:

Pool A in Stockholm, Sweden, 14. - 30 March 1970
Pool B in Bucharest, Romania, 24 February - 5 March 1970
Pool C in Galaţi, Romania, 13 - 22 February 1970

For the eighth straight year, the Soviet Union won the world championship. Originally the tournament was scheduled to be held in Montreal and Winnipeg in Canada.[1] However, after a dispute over allowing professional players in international tournaments, the Canadian team withdrew from hosting and competing in international hockey. They would not return to international play until 1977.[2] This tournament was also the first one to make helmets mandatory for all skaters.[1]
