Northern Ontario Hockey Association
The Northern Ontario Hockey Association is minor and junior level ice hockey governing body. The NOHA is sanctioned by the Ontario Hockey Federation and Hockey Canada. The major league run by the NOHA is the Northern Ontario Junior Hockey League of the Canadian Junior A Hockey League. There used to be a Junior "B" league called the North of Superior Junior B Hockey League, but it went defunct in 2004. There was also a NOHA Jr. B League, but it became the NOJHL in 1978. The International Junior B Hockey League existed for many years as well.
The NOHA was founded in 1919 and that same year became affiliated with the Ontario Hockey Association. Decades later, that affiliation was broken but both now operate under the Ontario Hockey Federation.
