Division place 1st, East
The 1996 Toronto Argonauts season was the 107th season for the team since the franchise's inception in 1873. The team finished in first place in the East Division with a 15–3–0 record and qualified for the playoffs after missing out during the previous season when they finished 4-14-0. The 11 win improvement was the greatest single-season turnaround in franchise history and the team's 15 regular season wins was the most ever recorded by an Argonaut team. In the playoffs, the Argonauts defeated the newly relocated Montreal Alouettes in the Eastern Final and qualified for the 84th Grey Cup. Toronto defeated the Edmonton Eskimos by a score of 43-37, the second highest scoring Grey Cup game in history, and won their 13th Grey Cup championship.
