The 1969–70 QMJHL season was the 1st season in the history of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. Eleven teams formed the new league, ten from Quebec and one from Ontario. Seven teams came from the Provincial Junior League, the Drummondville Rangers, Quebec Remparts, Saint-Jérôme Alouettes, Shawinigan Bruins, Sherbrooke Castors, Sorel Éperviers, and Trois-Rivières Ducs; four from the Metropolitan Montreal Junior League, the Rosemont National, Laval Saints, Verdun Maple Leafs, and the Cornwall Royals. The Royals originally came from the Central Junior A Hockey League. The teams played 56 games each in the schedule.
The Quebec Remparts finished first place in the regular season, and won the President's Cup, defeating the Saint-Jérôme Alouettes in the finals. The Remparts then advanced to the 1969-70 Eastern Canada Memorial Cup Playoffs. They defeated the P.E.I. Islanders from the Maritimes, then competed for the George Richardson Memorial Trophy, losing to the Montreal Junior Canadiens 3 games to 0 for the Eastern Canada title.
