The Canadian Independent Junior Hockey League (CIJHL) was a Canadian independent Junior A ice hockey league based in Lower Mainland of British Columbia. The CIHL was a member of the United Hockey Union, a part of the Amateur Athletic Union. None of the six teams announced to play in the CIJHL ever iced a team.

History[edit]

The CIJHL was announced in the Spring of 2014. It has unveiled 2 teams in Langley, and teams in Delta, Fleetwood, Pitt Meadows, and Surrey in the Lower Mainland of British Columbia.[1]

In early July 2013, the CIJHL applied for entry into the United Hockey Union and sanctioning from the Amateur Athletic Union.[2] One week after request the league was sanctioned by the AAU.[3]
