Due to a league member hosting the league champion will advance to the tournament. Due to the Fort St. John Huskies winning the league playoffs, the runner up the North Peace Navigators qualify as the league representative.
Traditionally, the Russ Barnes Trophy champion has advanced to the Keystone Cup to determine the Western Canada Junior B champion; however, Hockey Alberta announced that the provincial champion will no longer participate in the Keystone Cup citing cost and player safety. The member leagues which make up the Junior B level in British Columbia have also announced they will not participate in the event as well and BC Hockey does not mandate that their provincial champions participate in regional or national championships.
