|1969 BC Lions season|
|Head coach||Jim Champion|
|Home field||Empire Stadium|
|Division place||3rd, West|
|Playoff finish||Lost West Semi-Final|
After taking the club to a 1–9 record, head coach Jim Champion was relieved of his duties, and on September 24, assistant coach Jackie Parker was promoted to head coach. Parker led the club to a 4–2 finish and an unlikely playoff berth. They appeared in the West Semi-Final, losing to the Calgary Stampeders 35–21.
The offense continued to struggle and managed to score only 22 touchdowns. Bruising fullback Jim Evenson had another 1200+ yard season, but again fell second in the rushing race to Saskatchewan's George Reed.
