It was policy that the seventh game be played at a neutral site. The nearest western city with a large enough arena was Winnipeg but the arena there was booked by an ice show. If the game was played at Regina, the next nearest western city, the winning team would not have been able to reach Toronto in time for the Memorial Cup final. It was decided to play the game at Toronto which had the largest arena (Maple Leaf Gardens) and cut down on the travel necessary. The winning team would have been already in the city.

This was the first time that a Canadian amateur playoff was played in both western and eastern Canada. The only other times were in the 1950-51 Alexander Cup playoffs and the 1968-69 Memorial Cup Final.

Port Arthur West End Bruins beat Lethbridge Native Sons 4 wins to 3.

Port Arthur West End Bruins advanced to the 1947-48 Memorial Cup Final.
