The 2012 IIHF World U18 Championships was the 14th IIHF World U18 Championships and was hosted in Brno, Znojmo and Břeclav, Czech Republic. It began on April 12, 2012 with the gold medal game played on April 22, 2012.[1]

Brno and Znojmo were originally to co-host, but a schedule change became necessary when Kometa Brno unexpectedly advanced to the Czech Extraliga finals, making their home ice unavailable to the tournament on three days.

The United States defeated Sweden 7–0 in the final to win their seventh title.[2] Canada captured the bronze medal by beating Finland 5–4 in overtime.[3]
