Championships[edit | edit source]

The Vanier Cup was played between the champions of the Mitchell Bowl and the Churchill Bowl, the national semi-final games. In 2002, the Mitchell Bowl replaced the long-standing Atlantic Bowl that had traditionally seen Huskies Stadium in Halifax host the annual game. This was done to increase competitive fairness in the CIAU. The Ontario conference's Yates Cup championship team hosted the winners of the Atlantic conference Loney Bowl championship for the Churchill Bowl. The winners of the Canada West conference Hardy Trophy visited the Dunsmore Cup Quebec champion for the Mitchell Bowl.[3][4]
