1977 - 1981

In the early years of the tournament, Canada did not send a true National Junior team to the event. Instead, the Memorial Cup champions usually went to represent Canada. The exception was 1978 in Montreal, when an "all-star" team was put together. Records before the 1977 tournament are incomplete and, thus, not included in this compilation. More detailed histories have been created starting with the 1982 tournament, when Canada's first true National Junior team was created.

1977 - Zvolen, Czechoslovakia
