The OHL Gold Cup is an annual showcase event featuring top under-16 talent in Ontario. As part of the Hockey Canada Program of Excellence, select players from the OHL Gold Cup will be invited to attend the National Under-17 Selection Camp, where they will have a chance to compete with other top talent from across Canada and potentially earn a spot at the World Under-17 Hockey Challenge.

From the 2016 event, 28 OHL Gold Cup alumni were selected to play for Hockey Canada at the World Under-17’s – the largest Ontario contingent since the inception of the three Canadian team system.
