This article is about the National Senior "AA" ice hockey championship. For other uses, see Hardy Trophy.

The W. G. Hardy Trophy, more commonly referred to as the Hardy Cup, was the Canadian national Intermediate "A" ice hockey championship from 1967 until 1984. From 1985 until 1990, the Hardy Cup was the Canadian national senior championship for Senior "AA" after senior and intermediate hockey were merged by the Canadian Amateur Hockey Association. The trophy was retired to the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1990.

For years, up until the 1967-68 season, the Intermediate level had many regional championships. The most prominent was for the Edmonton Journal Trophy, the Western Canadian Intermediate "A" Crown. In Ontario, at some times, the Intermediate champions were included in Allan Cup Senior "A" playoffs as well.

In 1984, the Intermediate level was collapsed by the CAHA into senior hockey and the Hardy Cup was reclassified to be the Senior "AA" crown, one level down from the Senior "AAA" Allan Cup. Senior "AA" was unsustainable at the national level and the trophy was retired soon after.
