This is the 2019-20 Allan Cup Hockey West season. This is the league's 51st season. This would be the league's third season under this name as the league was renamed from the Chinook Hockey League during the 2017 off season. The league reverted to the Chinook Hockey League moniker in September.
- The Fort Saskatchewan Chiefs withdrew on October 31, 2018 and ended up joining the North Central Hockey League (Alberta) for the 2019-20 season.
- On May 10, 2019 the Rosetown Redwings announced they would be departing from the league. This has put the survival of the league into question as the league will be down to three teams for the 2019-20 season.

The two teams will compete in ACHW also in an attempt to qualify for the Allan Cup and in an attempt to save Senior AAA hockey in the province. The two teams were attempting to line up games with other teams such as the alumni teams of the Calgary Flames and the Edmonton Oilers.
