The 1987 World Women's Hockey Tournament was held April 21-April 26, 1987 in North York in Canada. This was the first major world tournament for the Women's game, and was the first unofficial tournament before the IIHF launched their world championship in 1990. The Ontario Women's Hockey Association hosted the tournament. During the tournament, representatives from participating nations met to establish a strategy to lobby the International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF) for the creation of a Women's World Championship.

Team Canada won the tournament defeating the Province of Ontario by 4-0 in the final game.
