The Alouettes played regular season games in Olympic Stadium during the 1996 and 1997 seasons before moving to Percival Molson Stadium. As of 2008, the franchise uses Olympic Stadium for playoff games only. Also, the stadium was originally designed as a retractable roof stadium but the roof was not installed until 1987. Since 1992, the roof has been kept closed at all times except for a brief period during 1998 in order to install a new roof, thereby making the stadium a dome.
