The Canadian Colleges Athletic Association (CCAA) is the governing body of the second tier of university/college sport in Canada, and operates independently of U Sport, formerly known as Canadian Interuniversity Sport.
The CCAA has not held a national hockey playoff since 2001. However, the Alberta Colleges Athletic Conference (ACAC) continues to operate, the British Columbia Intercollegiate Hockey League (BCIHL) is open to college teams, and the Réseau du sport étudiant du Québec (RSEQ) operates a league of mostly Cégep teams.
The champions of the different conferences of the CCAA used to compete for the Al Bohonous CCAA Championship Bowl as their National Championship.
