The 1972 World Figure Skating Championships were held at the Stampede Corral in Calgary, Alberta, Canada from March 7 to March 11, 1972. At the event, sanctioned by the International Skating Union, medals were awarded in men's singles, ladies' singles, pair skating, and ice dancing.

The ISU Representative was John R. Shoemaker (United States) and the ISU Technical Delegates were Hermann Schiechtl (West Germany) and Donald H. Gilchrist (Canada).
