Notes[edit]

  1. ^ The CFL considers all clubs that have played in Montreal as one in their league records, including those of the original Alouettes (1946–1981), the Montreal Concordes (1982–1986) and the Baltimore Stallions (1994–1995). The Alouettes, however, do not recognize the Baltimore franchise, or its records, as part of the official team history.
