New Brunswick has been awarded the 2017 Allan Cup tournament.
Hockey Canada Senior Council will now take their recommendation to the Board of Directors meeting later this month for a final vote.
Alberta, Ontario and Newfoundland were also hoping to be named as the host province.
Locally, the Bentley Generals, Innisfail Eagles and Stony Plain Eagles had each announced their intentions to bid had Alberta been selected.
The 2017 tournament became available after the original host team, the Kenora Thistles, folded last month.
New Brunswick will now choose a host team from the North East Senior Hockey League.
