The Provincial Junior Hockey League (PJHL) is a Canadian junior ice hockey league spanning Southern Ontario, and parts of Central Ontario.

In the works since 2014, in the spring of 2016 it was announced that the eight Junior C leagues of the Ontario Hockey Association would merge for the 2016-17 season to create the Provincial Junior Hockey League. The union was in an effort to streamline rules across the classification and to promote growth and development.
