The Vancouver Canadians are a minor league baseball team based in Vancouver, British Columbia. The Canadians are the Northwest League affiliate of the Toronto Blue Jays.
The C’s have previously affiliated with the Oakland Athletics between 2000–2010. They are the only Canadian team in the “affiliated” minor leagues—i.e., part of the farm system of a Major League Baseball team. This came about after the Ottawa Lynx moved to Allentown, Pennsylvania.
The NWL Canadians supplanted a Triple-A franchise of the same name that played for 22 seasons (1978–99) in the Pacific Coast League. The current incarnation of the Canadians was established in 2000 after the AAA Canadians moved to West Sacramento, California and became the Sacramento River Cats (which is now an affiliate of the San Francisco Giants).
