Alberta teams advanced when they met their Saskatchewan counterparts in 1981, 1982 and 1990.

To date, there have been no CCAA Women's Hockey National Championships despite the efforts of conferences based in Alberta and Quebec.
In 2003, Red Deer College and John Abbott College led an effort to establish a national championship. Teams from the two provinces played one another in an effort to raise awareness of the sport.
Without adequate competition in the other conferences, a national championship did not materialize.
