The 1999–2000 ISU Junior Grand Prix was the third season of the ISU Junior Grand Prix, a series of international junior level competitions organized by the International Skating Union. It was the junior-level complement to the Grand Prix of Figure Skating, which was for senior-level skaters. Skaters competed in the disciplines of men's singles, ladies' singes, pair skating, and ice dancing. The top skaters from the series met at the Junior Grand Prix Final.

There was an unbreakable tie in 4th place standings in the pairs event, and so Chantal Poirier / Craig Buntin of Canada and Aliona Savchenko / Stanislav Morozov of Ukraine both qualified in 4th position. There were no 5th place qualifiers in pairs, because that spot was left empty as a result of the tie for fourth. The two teams had tied exactly, down to the 7th tiebreaker. In later years, a different final tiebreaker was added, one which would have allowed for this tie to be broken.
