The Hockey PEI is the governing body of all ice hockey in Prince Edward Island, Canada. Hockey PEI is a branch of Hockey Canada. The organization has been in existence from 1974 to present and is subdivided into six smaller councils, including Minor Hockey Council, Female Hockey Council, Junior Hockey Council, Senior Hockey Council, Development Council, and Officials Council. Hockey PEI has approximately 8,000 members throughout the province.

The organization was previously known as the "Prince Edward Island Hockey Association". The change was made at a meeting held January 16, 2006. The change was made to go along with the renaming of the Canadian Amateur Hockey Association to Hockey Canada which had already been done by 8 other provincial/regional member branches under Hockey Canada's jurisdiction at this point.

History

The Maritime Amateur Hockey Association (MAHA) was granted a branch membership within the Canadian Amateur Hockey Association (CAHA) in 1928, with its jurisdiction including the Maritimes provinces of New Brunswick, Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island.[1][2]

The New Brunswick Amateur Hockey Association separated from the MAHA and became its own branch of the CAHA in 1968.[3] The MAHA ceased to exist when the Nova Scotia Hockey Association was granted branch status in the CAHA in 1974, and then the Prince Edward Island Hockey Association was formed and also granted branch status in the CAHA.[1][2]
