The Pacific Coast Junior Hockey League was a Canadian Junior "A" ice hockey league operating in British Columbia in the 1960s and 1970s.


The Pacific Coast Junior Hockey League first operated from 1962 until 1967 as Junior "A" hockey league. Their champion each of those 5 seasons was the New Westminster Royals, who then proceeded to the Mowat Cup to play against the champions of the Okanagan Junior Hockey League and the Kootenay Junior Hockey League for the right to move on into the Memorial Cup playoffs. The league folded in 1967 and New Westminster and the Victoria Cougars jumped to the British Columbia Junior Hockey League.

In 1974, the league was restarted as a Tier II Junior "A" by Fred Page. Fred Page was a Canadian Amateur Hockey Association executive, who later had the Fred Page Cup and the BCHL's Championship Trophy named after him. The league continued to run until 1979, when Fred Page agreed to allow a merger between the BCJHL and the PCJHL. The league's top team at that time was the Richmond Sockeyes.
