The 2011–12 BCHL season marked the 50th anniversary of the British Columbia Hockey League. (BCHL) The sixteen teams from the Coastal and Interior Conferences played 60 game schedules.

Come March, the top teams from each division will play for the Fred Page Cup, the BCHL Championship. The winner of the Fred Page Cup plays the AJHL champion in a best-of-seven series for the right to represent the Pacific region in the Royal Bank Cup

Changes[edit]

  • The Fred Page Cup Playoffs have been reduced by one round. The top four teams from each conference will advance instead of the top six.
  • The Quesnel Millionaires moved to Chilliwack, becoming the Chilliwack Chiefs
  • In response to Chilliwack having a team again, the Langley Chiefs renamed themselves to the Langley Rivermen
