The North and South Divisions will have all 19 Ontario/Quebec teams competing across four playoff rounds. While, the GMHL West Division will be playing for their West Divisional Championship. 

Due to the continued Covid-19 restrictions and uncertainity, there will not be a National Championship held this year. The winners of Ontario/Quebec and the West will be the respective season champions. 

Ontario/Quebec:
The North and South Divisions will play within their respective divisions to determine each Divisional champion. The winners of the North and South Divisions will faceoff in the Russell Cup Final.

Teams are reseeded following every round in reference to the Regular Season standings with the remaining teams -- thus the bracket is subject to change. All teams are given an opportunity in playoffs. Qualifying play-in rounds will be played to determine a division-based eight team playoff bracket. The top 7 teams in each division at the end of the regular season are automatically seeded into the playoff bracket, while the remaining teams will play single game eliminations for the final seed.

In each division, the highest seed receives home ice advantage in reference to the regular season standings.
