The Montréal Carabins CIS football team began its second incarnation in 2002 after over thirty years of being dormant. The Carabins first began play in 1966 in the Ontario Intercollegiate Football Conference and continued play for the next six seasons. The program was dropped after the 1971 season due to a shift in philosophy as many francophone universities placed an emphasis on community involvement and intramural athletic activities as opposed to intercollegiate athletics. That philosophy has shifted back to intercollegiate sports as Université Laval, Montréal and Université de Sherbrooke each began programs in 1996, 2002 and 2003, respectively.
The current program has seen marked success in the regular season, having qualified for the playoffs in each of the past 11 seasons, but has never gotten past the Dunsmore Cup, and has lost the semi-final six of those 11 times.
The 2009-10 season was their inaugural season in the CIS. The Carabins finished second during the regular season and claimed the fifth position in the CIS Canadian championships. In their second season (2010–11), the team ranked in second place in the Québécois conference behind the McGill Martlets. In the 2011 playoffs, the Carabins eliminated the Concordia Stingers but the Carabins are in turn to eliminate in finale by McGill. This elimination did not qualify them for the CIS championships at Waterloo, Ontario.
