The 2005 Telus Cup was Canada's 27th annual national midget 'AAA' hockey championship, played April 18–24, 2005 at the Robert Guertin Arena in Gatineau, Quebec.[1] The Saskatoon Contacts defeated the host L'Intrépide de Gatineau 4-1 in the gold medal game to win the national title. National Hockey League defencemen Luke Schenn and Eric Gryba were members of the Contacts' championship team.

At the start of the 2004-05 hockey season, Telus signed on as a premier sponsor of Hockey Canada. As a result of the sponsorship agreement, the national midget championship was named the Telus Cup. Until 2003, it had been known as the Air Canada Cup.[2]
