The 2020 Montreal Alouettes season is scheduled to be the 54th season for the team in the Canadian Football League and their 66th overall. The Alouettes will attempt to improve upon their 10–8 record from 2019, make the playoffs for the second consecutive season, and win their eighth Grey Cup championship.

This would be the second season for Khari Jones as the team's head coach and offensive coordinator as he had the "interim" tag removed after he agreed to a three-year extension on November 26, 2019.[1] This would be his first full season, including pre-season, as the team's head coach.[2] This will be the first season under the ownership of S and S Sportsco, which is operated by Sid Speigel and Gary Stern. The new owners appointed Danny Maciocia as the team's general manager and named local businessman Mario Cecchini as the team's new president.[3]

Training camps, pre-season games, and regular season games have been postponed due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The CFL announced on April 7, 2020 that the start of the 2020 season would not occur before July 2020.[4] On May 20, 2020, it was announced that the league would likely not begin regular season play prior to September 2020.[5]
