The Vancouver Island Raiders are a Canadian Junior Football team based in Nanaimo, British Columbia. The Raiders play in the eight-team B.C. Football Conference, which itself is part of the Canadian Junior Football League (CJFL) and competes annually for the national title known as the Canadian Bowl. After an aborted move of the Victoria Rebels to Nanaimo in late 2004, the Raiders were founded in 2005, and won the CJFL championship in 2006, 2008 and 2009. The Raiders also won consecutive BCFC titles from 2006 through 2011. Andrew Harris of the CFL's Winnipeg Blue Bombers played for the Raiders from 2006-2009. Jonathan Quick is and has been a Stanley Cup champion and once played as a championship quarter back in the 2003 season when the raiders struck gold at the NAPA bowl.
