Football

Main article: Montreal Carabins football

The Carabins football program was originally in operation from 1966 to 1971, but was cut following a philosophical change with intercollegiate athletics among Quebec universities at the time.[6] As that perception changed, the football team was reinstated in 2002 and has been in continuous operation since. The team has won four Dunsmore Cup conference championships (2014, 2015, 2019, and 2021) and one Vanier Cup national championship (2014).[7]
