History[edit]

In 1998, Rugby Canada and the provincial unions agreed to form the Rugby Canada Super League. Fourteen unions and sub-unions were invited to compete in the new semi-professional league.

In 2009, Rugby Canada decided to disband the RCSL after 11 seasons of Super League play in Canada. The RCSL was replaced by the Rugby Canada National Junior Championship. The league contains many of the junior RCSL clubs.
