The 1984 Air Canada Cup was Canada's sixth annual national midget 'AAA' hockey championship, which was played April 17 – 21, 1984 at the North Bay Memorial Gardens in North Bay, Ontario. Prior to the season, the Canadian Amateur Hockey Association overhauled the format of the Air Canada Cup. Under the new format, the twelve branch champions would compete in five regional playoffs to qualify for the national championship. They would be joined by the host team to round out the six-team field.

The host North Bay Pinehill ended up winning the first gold medal under the Air Canada Cup's new format. The Notre Dame Hounds and Lions du Lac St-Louis took silver and bronze, respectively.[1] Future National Hockey League players competing in the 1984 tournament were Shawn Anderson, Ian Herbers, Claude Lapointe, Don MacLean, Randy McKay, Myles O'Connor, Luke Richardson, Cam Russell, Darren Turcotte, and Brad Werenka.
