The Ontario Hockey Federation will host all three AAA provincial championships in 2020 including the All-Ontario Peewee AAA Championship, All-Ontario Bantam AAA Championships and the Central Region Midget AAA Championship.
The Burlington Eagles of the Ontario Minor Hockey Association (OMHA) have been selected as the PeeWee AAA hosts, the Waterloo Wolves of the Minor Hockey Alliance of Ontario (ALLIANCE) will host the Bantam AAA Championship, while the defending TELUS Cup Champions, the Toronto Young Nationals of the Greater Toronto Hockey League (GTHL) have been selected to host the Midget AAA Championships.
The All-Ontario Championships are the pinnacle events for Peewee and Bantam AAA hockey teams, bringing together the champions from each of the OHF, HEO and HNO, along with the host team.
