Canada - List of Champions

Voyageurs Cup

Between 2002 and 2007 this cup was awarded by the Voyageurs Group (a fan association) to the Canadian USL-1 (formerly A-League) team with the best record in the intra-Canadian matches.
It was handed over to the CSA to be awarded to the winners of the qualification tournament for the CONCACAF Champions League, dubbed Canadian Championship (bar sponsor name). Therefore, since 2008 the winners are considered the official Canadian champions.
