The Gatineau Olympiques are a Canadian ice hockey team. They began playing in 1969. The team currently plays in the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League. They play their home games in Gatineau, Quebec at the Robert Guertin Centre.

The team was first a member of the Central Junior A Hockey League and was known as the Hull Castors and then the Hull Hawks. They renamed themselves the Hull Festivals and then the Hull Olympiques. The city of Hull was merged with the city of Gatineau in 2002 and the team changed their name to the Gatineau Olympiques.[1]
