The decades 1940, 1950 and 1960, Montreal Carabins add several sports teams to affect a summit in the years 1965-1970 both by the number of offered sports activities and by the quality of their organization.

End of the 80s Return of the teams of swimming (1985) and of volleyball (men in 1988 and women in 1989). The various teams know a lot of success at the beginning of the 1990s while the University knows money troubles.
1994 the big blackout: The budgetary situation of the university does not allow to absorb the expenses of the program of the Carabins and the activities of the teams are suspended.
1995 Relaunching of the program of excellent sport via the physical educational department
1997 Victory in the referendum of the student federation FAECUM: The student Federation agrees to contribute to the financing of the sporting programs up to $100,000. a year.

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 12 seasons, but difficulty getting beyond the conference championship. That changed in 2014, as the Carabins won the 50th Vanier Cup. On their way there, they defeated the Laval Rouge et Or to win their first Dunsmore Cup, the Manitoba Bisons in the Uteck Bowl and then the McMaster Marauders in the Vanier Cup final.
