The 1991 Air Canada Cup was Canada's 13th annual national midget 'AAA' hockey championship, which was played April 23 – 28, 1991 at the Max Bell Centre in Calgary, Alberta.

The gold medal game was an all-Alberta showdown, as the Calgary Northstars defeated the Sherwood Park Chain Gang to become the third host team to win the national midget title. Shawn Davis scored the game-tying goal for the Northstars and Scott Bradford the game-winner in the Northstars' 2-1 defeat of the Chain Gang. Bradford was the game MVP and Davis was subsequently voted the Northstars' most improved player.

The Lions du Lac St-Louis defeated the Winnipeg Hawks to win the bronze medal.[1]

Future National Hockey League players competing in the 1991 Air Canada Cup were Manny Fernandez, Norm Maracle, Tyson Nash, and Brad Chartrand.
