The 2012 Women's World Championship was the 15th such event hosted by the International Ice Hockey Federation. The competition also served as qualifications for the 2013 competition, and the 2014 Olympics.

Canada won their tenth title by defeating the United States 5–4 in overtime. Caroline Ouellette scored the decisive goal.[1] The Swiss team, by finishing third, captured their first ever Women's World Championship medal.[2]

Top Division Edit

The Top Division was contested between eight teams from April 7 to April 14, 2012. The event was hosted by USA Hockey in Burlington, Vermont. A new format was used where the top four ranked teams were placed in Group A and were automatically qualified for the final round, and played in the preliminary round was only used to determine seeding for the next round. The top two teams received a bye into the semifinals. Meanwhile, the next four teams played the preliminary round in Group B. The top two teams from Group B joined the others for the final round, while the bottom two team played a best-of-three series, with the loser being relegated next year.[3]
