Montreal will have opened its regular season the previous Friday by visiting the Ottawa Redblacks on June 11 at 7:30 pm.

The Alouettes will play four home games under the Friday Night Lights. The team will also host two home Saturday evening games and as many Thursday night games. Khari Jones’ group will also renew with the traditional Thanksgiving Monday game, when they host the Redblacks on June 11, at 1:00 p.m.

In order to build regional rivalries and limit player travel, one extra intra-division game has been added to the schedule in place of an inter-division game. The full schedule is below.
