This is the 2016-17 Central Canada Hockey League Tier 2 season. This is the league's 2nd season under this name and the league's 52nd season dating back to the founding of the Rideau-St Lawrence Junior B League in 1966. The league was known as the Eastern Ontario Junior Hockey League prior to the 2015-16 season.
- The Stittsville Rams had their relationship with the minor hockey program of the same name terminated late in the 2015-16 season. The team was sold during the off-season and returned to its roots and became the Richmond Royals again, which they were known as from 1968 to 1990.
After the season,
- The Clarence Beavers relocated to Carleton Place where they will be renamed the Carleton Place Canadians as the junior B affiliate of the similarly labeled Carleton Place Canadians of the Central Canada Hockey League.
- The Prescott Flyers were purchased by their CCHL affiliate the Pembroke Lumber Kings and were being relocated to Cobden where they will be known as the Whitewater Kings. The town of Prescott would be getting a team in the National Capital Junior Hockey League that will be called the South Grenville Rangers.
- The Metcalfe Jets dropped down to the Junior C level National Capital Junior Hockey League and were being replaced by the Embrun Panthers who were conversely moving up from the NCJHL.
