The 2011 Memorial Cup was a four-team round-robin format ice hockey tournament played from May 20–29, 2011 in Mississauga, Ontario. It was the 93rd annual Memorial Cup competition and determined the major junior ice hockey champion of the Canadian Hockey League (CHL). The Ontario Hockey League (OHL) announced on May 10, 2010 that the Mississauga St. Michael's Majors were chosen to host the event at the Hershey Centre. Other tournament participants included the Owen Sound Attack from the Ontario Hockey League (OHL), the Saint John Sea Dogs from the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League (QMJHL) and the Kootenay Ice from the Western Hockey League (WHL).

The Majors won the right to host the event over the Barrie Colts, Kingston Frontenacs and Windsor Spitfires.[1]

The Saint John Sea Dogs defeated the Mississauga St. Michael's Majors 3–1 in the final to win the title for the first time, and as a result, became the first team based in Canada's Maritime Provinces to win the Memorial Cup.
