In 1971, the league was a Junior B league created by Fred Page. In 1974, the league was promoted to a Tier II Junior "A". Fred Page was a Canadian Amateur Hockey Association executive, who later had the Fred Page Cup and the BCHL's Championship Trophy named after him. The league continued to run until 1979, when Fred Page agreed to allow a merger between the BCJHL and the PJHL. The league's top team at that time was the Richmond Sockeyes.
