The Vancouver Mounties were a high-level minor league baseball club based in Vancouver, British Columbia. The Mounties played in the Pacific Coast League from 1956 through 1962 as the relocated Oakland Oaks franchise, and from 1965 through 1969 when the Dallas Rangers moved back to Canada.

The Mounties were affiliated with a number of Major League Baseball parent clubs: the Baltimore Orioles, Milwaukee Braves, Minnesota Twins, the Athletics of both Kansas City and Oakland, and as a co-op club working with the Seattle Pilots and Montreal Expos in 1969. The following season, the club moved to Salt Lake City.

Vancouver was without professional baseball from 1970-77, but in 1978 it received an expansion PCL franchise, called the Vancouver Canadians. The PCL club moved to Sacramento in 2000, and the Canadians now play in the Short Season A Northwest League.
