The event is being held for the first time since 2012 when it was announced that the tournament was replaced by the Western Canada Cup. It was announced prior to the 2017 tournament that the WCC would be abandoned for 2017-18 due to cost concerns and return to the Anavet Cup and Doyle Cup formats which were used prior to 2013.
Due to the Saskatchewan representative having home ice advantage for the 2012 tournament the Manitoba representative would have home ice for the 2018 tournament. The one format change from 2012 was that the games were scheduled in a 2-3-2 format to reduce travel expenses. The previous editions used the 2-2-1-1-1 format.
