In March, the top teams from each division played for the Fred Page Cup, the BCHL Championship, won by the Prince George Spruce Kings. From there, they represented the league in the Doyle Cup, a best-of-seven series against the Alberta Junior Hockey League champion Brooks Bandits, normally to determine who represents the Pacific region in the National Junior A Championship. However, as the National Junior A Championship was being hosted in Brooks, Alberta, by the Brooks Bandits with the automatic hosts berth, the Spruce Kings were already guaranteed a spot in the tournament no matter the outcome. The Spruce Kings defeated the Bandits four games to two.
- Overtime consisted of a single five minute 3-on-3 overtime period, followed by a three player shootout.
- The league began using hybrid icing rules.
