The 2004 National Midget Championship was Canada's 26th annual national midget 'AAA' hockey championship, played April 18–25, 2004 at Kenora, Ontario.[1] The Brandon Wheat Kings defeated the Riverains du Collège Charles-Lemoyne 2-1 in overtime to win their first and only national title. It also marked the first time that a Manitoba team was the national midget champion.

This was the only season that Hockey Canada did not have a sponsor for the national midget championship. From 1979 to 2003, it was known as the Air Canada Cup. Later in 2004, a new sponsor would be found and the midget championship would be renamed the Telus Cup.[2]
