Helmets of Discontinued Canadian College Teams
Below is a list sent to me several years ago by a visitor to this website (thanks Bob W.) of Canadian colleges and universities which once sponsored intercollegiate football but which no longer do so; the year listed for each school is reported to be the last in which football was played at the college. I would greatly appreciate information (especially photographs) about historical helmet designs (used since 1960) for any of these teams.
- 1966 - St. Patrick's College (Ottawa, ON) - amalgamated with Carleton University
- 1971 - Laurentian University (Sudbury, ON)
- 1971 - Université de Montréal (Montreal, QC) Note: U. de Montreal re-established a football program for the 2002 season.
- 1971 or 1972 - Royal Military College (Kingston, ON)
- 1972 - Collège Militaire Royal de Saint-Jean (St. Jean, QC)
- 1972 - Université du Québec à Montréal (Montreal, QC)
- 1972 - Sir George Williams University (Montreal, QC)
- 1973 - Macdonald College (Ste. Anne de Bellevue, QC) - amalgamated with McGill University of Montreal
- 1973 - Université de Sherbrooke (Sherbrooke, QC) (football returned to Sherbrooke in 2003)
- 1974 - Loyola College (Montreal, QC) - Loyola College and Sir George Williams University merged to form Concordia University which continues to field a football program in the QIFC.
- 1976 - Dalhousie University (Halifax, NS)
- 1979 - Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières (Trois-Rivières, QC)
- 1979 - University of Prince Edward Island (Charlottetown, PEI)
- 1980 - University of New Brunswick (Fredericton, NB)
- 1990 - University College of Cape Breton (Sydney, NS) Note: This program existed for that one year only.
- 1998 - Carleton University (Ottawa, ON) (football returned to Carleton in 2013)
The Dalhousie (Halifax, NS) "Tigers" last played in 1976 and apparently used plain gold helmets through at least the period 1970-1974.
UQTR (Université du Québec à Trois-Rivières)
UQTR (Trois-Rivières, Quebec) used this design at an unknown time, probably during the late 1970s; the team last played in (I think) 1979. The team nickname was "Patriotes". Football will apparently return to UQTR in 2017.
