The first instances of organized women's ice hockey in Canada date back to the 1890s when it is played at the university level. The Women's Hockey Association claims that the city of Ottawa, Ontario hosted the first game in 1891. In 1920, Lady Meredith, wife of Sir Vincent Meredith of Montreal donated the Lady Meredith Cup for the Quebec Ladies' Hockey Association, said to be the first women's ice hockey trophy to be competed for in Canada. In February 1921 a women's international championship series was played in conjunction with the Pacific Coast Hockey Association. One of the first professional teams were the Vancouver Amazons from the 1920s. They were the first women's hockey team from Vancouver to participate in the invitational women's hockey tournament sponsored by the Banff Winter

La Coupe est en compétition depuis 1982 lors du tout premier championnat national canadien de hockey féminin tenu à Brantford, en Ontario. La coupe rend hommage à Abby Hoffman, une athlète canadienne qui après sa retraite du sport est la première femme à occuper le poste de directeur général de Sport Canada (1981 à 1991).
