This is the 2016-17 Kootenay International Junior Hockey League season. This was the league's 56th season.

In July 2016, the league announced for the 2016-17 season that the inter-conference play between the Okanagan-Shuswap Conference and the Kootenay Conference would be eliminated during the regular season and that the schedule woudl be reduced from 52 to 47 games.  The reduction in the number of games also nearly eliminated the use of week night games.  The moves served two purposes for the players and the owners first to reduce the strain on the players with much less travel and time to spend on their studies and the reduction of travel expenses and the elimination of unprofitable games held in the middle of the week.
