The 1997–98 QMJHL season was the 29th season in the history of the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. The Québec Remparts name is revived after twelve years when the Beauport Harfangs change indentities. The QMJHL continues to grow in eastern markets with an expansion team in Baie-Comeau, Quebec and the relocating of the Granby Prédateurs relocated to Cape Breton.

The league inaugurates the Philips Plaque, awarded to the player with the best faceoff percentage. The Ford Cups are renamed the Telus Cups, one each for the offensive and defensive players of the year.

Fifteen teams played 70 games each in the schedule. The Québec Remparts finished first overall in the regular season winning their first Jean Rougeau Trophy, since the original name was revived. The Val-d'Or Foreurs won their first President's Cup, defeating the Rimouski Océanic in the finals.
