The Junior Ontario Rugby Football Union Championship was won by 10 different teams over a 12-year period from 1890 to 1901. Most notable among the teams is the appearance of the Toronto Argonauts II team and Hamilton Tigers III, Junior teams of future Canadian Football League teams.
The Canadian Junior Football League has been running Amateur Province-based Championships since 1887, under various names (Canadian Rugby Union, Canadian Junior Football League). In Canada Gridiron Football was known as Rugby until the Canadian Football League split away from the Canadian Rugby Union in 1958 to form its own Professional League and adopt more American Football Rules. The sport has been known as Canadian Football since. (For more on Canadian Football history see: Canadian Football Leagues
