The 2016 Allan Cup was the 2016 Canadian Grand National Championship of Senior ice hockey and the 108th year the trophy was awarded. The tournament was contended in Steinbach, Manitoba from April 11 to April 16, 2016, with all games played at the T.G. Smith Centre.[1][2] The Bentley Generals defeated the host and defending champion South East Prairie Thunder in overtime to win the national title.[3]

This year's Allan Cup marked the second time in eight seasons that the Allan Cup was played in Steinbach, with three of the participating teams from 2009 returning for 2016.
