The 1984–85 OJHL season is the 13th season of the Ontario Junior Hockey League (OJHL). The eight teams of the league played a 48-game season. The all eight teams made the playoffs.

The winner of the OJHL playoffs, the Orillia Travelways, were already hosting the 1985 Centennial Cup and were therefore exempted from the Buckland Cup/Dudley Hewitt Cup series against the Northern Ontario Junior Hockey League champion. Instead, the league finalists, the Aurora Tigers were granted the option of playing for the OHA and Central Canadian Championship. Both the Tigers and Travelways ended up at the Centennial Cup, which the Travelways won.[1]
