The CARHA Hockey World Cup Hockey Tournament brings together teams and spectators from many parts of the globe to share their great attachment to the sport of hockey. 

Attracting anywhere from 2,500 to 3,000 participants from 15 or more countries, the CARHA Hockey World Cup (CHWC) has been the world’s largest international adult recreational hockey tournament. Organized every four years (since 1996) in a selected Canadian City, this week-long event provides adult recreational hockey players, from around the world the opportunity to strive for excellence through team work, fair play, and camaraderie in Canada’s national sport.

In 1996 (Toronto, ON), the CARHA Hockey World Cup was reborn and built on an Olympic-themed approach; hosted every four years. During this rejuvenation, CARHA’s goal and intention was to provide recreational players over the age of 19 from around the world the opportunity to play in a hockey tournament with international flair. 

Over this time, the CARHA Hockey World Cup has been held in Toronto, ON (1996), Vancouver, BC (2000), Ottawa, ON (2004), Québec, QC (2008), Sault Ste. Marie, ON (2012) and most recently in Windsor, ON (2016)
