The Jazz did not play in the 2013-14 NBL Canada season after failing to secure a new ownership group.[2]



On October 26, 2012, NBL Canada announced that a Montreal expansion team would join the league in place of the recently folded Laval Kebs.

It was announced on November 1, 2012, that the team would be named the Montreal Jazz.[3]

After finishing the 2012-13 NBL Canada season with a disappointing 2–38 record and without an owner, the NBL Canada Board of Governors decided to suspend the Jazz for the 2013-14 season.[4]
