About the Ottawa International Hockey Festival
The Ottawa International Hockey Festival (OIHF), known as the Bell Capital Cup, is a not-for-profit corporation established to showcase and promote tourism within the capital region and also to promote sportsmanship, fair play and team work along with helping to develop local minor hockey teams and players by providing a world class, local hockey tournament and festival.

Each year since 2000, the Festival has welcomed minor hockey teams to the nation’s capital from across Canada and around the world to compete in the world’s premier atom (9- and 10-year-olds) and peewee (11- and 12-year-olds) minor hockey festival during the holiday season.
Since its inception, the OIHF has donated more than $2 million to minor hockey associations and charitable organizations in the capital region, helping to make hockey more accessible for families in Ottawa-Gatineau.
Starting with 94 local teams in 2000, the OIHF established a new world record for the largest international hockey tournament in 2007 with 510 teams (8,145 players). The 2016 Festival had more than 400 teams representing 4,000-plus participants and more than 15,000 spectators and visitors.
The annual economic impact of the OIHF is estimated to be in excess of $11 million, drawing thousands of visitors to the National Capital Region.
