1968-69 O-Pee-Chee Hockey saw the company issue its own separate set in Canada, rather than making and distributing their cards under the Topps name. From this point forward, the sets would be differentiated between the two countries with two similar but different sets. O-Pee-Chee's would be larger and have more subset and specialty cards. Also, because they were printed in Canada, the backs would be written in two languages while Topps' cards would carry English-only text.

1968-69 O-Pee-Chee Hockey card fronts have a horizontal format. A player picture takes up one-third of the card, superimposed in front of an artist's rendition of a generic hockey play. A team logo appears in the upper-right corner. The bottom area has a series of arrow-shaped boxes. The player's name appears in the first box, his team city and position in the next, and then his picture was superimposed over the last one. Backs are broken up into two main sections. The player's name was included in a white stripe running along the top, with the card number inside a puck-shaped icon in the upper left. A box on the left includes a cartoon about the player, and the one on the right gives his position and team city followed by a short biography in both English and French and a single line of stats from the previous season.

All 12 teams are included in the set. Card 193 features Keith McCreary and can be found either with or without a number. The error is much more valuable. Cards 199 through 210 feature All-Star players and cards 211 through 216 showed the players who won the different awards the previous season. There are also two checklist cards in the set.

Notable rookies include Bernie Parent, Mickey Redmond, Gary Smith and Garry Unger.
