CALGARY - Manitoba will host the RBC Cup for the fifth time in 2015.

Portage la Prairie will host the Canadian national junior A championship in May 2015, Hockey Canada said Tuesday in a release. The Portage Terriers of the Manitoba Junior Hockey League will serve as the tournament's host team.

The Terriers and four regional representatives will face off for the 45th national championship at the PCU Centre.

"There are few tournaments in Canada with the history and prestige of the RBC Cup, and we could not be more excited to be going to Portage la Prairie for the 2015 event," said Hockey Canada president Bob Nicholson. "The Terriers have a proud junior A tradition, and we know the organization and the city will do a first-class job hosting the nation's top teams."

The tournament was previously held in Manitoba in Dauphin (2010), Flin Flon (2001), Winnipeg (1992) and Winnipeg-Brandon (1973).

The 2014 RBC Cup will be held May 10-18 in Vernon, B.C.
