1955-56 program

History[edit | edit source]

The Vernon Canadians played in the Okanagan Mainline League and the Okanagan Senior League thoroughout their combined 12 year history.

They won the Allan Cup in 1956 and would have gone on to the World Championship in 1957. Unfortunately, they were being held in Moscow. The western nations boycotted them in protest over the Soviet Union's invasion of Hungary in 1956.

They lost the Allan Cup final to the Whitby Dunlops in 1959.

Vernon and all the other teams in the Okanagan Senior League folded in 1961.
