The Atlantic Schooners were a Canadian Football League expansion team that was set to begin play in 1984 based out of Halifax, Nova Scotia. The Schooners were granted a "conditional expansion franchise" on May 13, 1982 on the condition that a suitable stadium could be built in time for the 1984 CFL season.

Schooners was selected as the team name following a name the team contest, the logo featured an A in the shape of a maratime schooner. The four waves near the bottom of the logo were meant to represent the four Atlantic Canada provices of New Brunswick, Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, and Prince Edward Island.

After failing to meet deadlines set by the CFL for stadium construction the ownership group withdrew their membership in the league in June of 1983. The Atlantic Schooners never played a game in their franchise history.
