The 1996 World Junior Ice Hockey Championships (1996 WJHC) was the 20th edition of the World Junior Ice Hockey Championship, hosted in Boston, MA. The tournament was won by Canada – defeating Sweden 4-1 in the gold-medal game – earning Canada their fourth straight gold medal and ninth overall.

Attendance was less than spectacular for the championships in the United States. It would be the last time the US would host the tournament until 2005 in Grand Forks

Among this edition of the tournament's future NHL stars were Milan Hejduk, Miikka Kiprusoff, Chris Drury, and tournament scoring leader Jarome Iginla.
