The 1962 Ice Hockey World Championships was the 29th edition of the Ice Hockey World Championships. The tournament was held in Colorado Springs and Denver, United States from March 8 to March 18, 1962. This was the first World Championship hosted in North America that was not part of ice hockey at the Olympic Games.

Before the tournament, the World Championship was almost due cancelled due to the tension in the political area and the Berlin Wall. This tension would see teams from the Eastern Side of the Wall withdraw with Sweden also withdrawing for other reasons outside of their control. In the tournament, the United States took out the gold medal ahead of Canada with Finland rounding out the podium. In Group B, Japan finished on top of the table ahead of France and Belgium.
