Description:
The N.J. Taylor Trophy is a Canadian Football League trophy, formerly awarded to the West Division champions. The winner of this trophy faced the winner of the James S. Dixon Trophy for the Grey Cup. Both the N. J. Taylor Trophy and James S. Dixon Trophy were retired in 2004.

The N.J. Taylor Trophy was named after former Western Inter—Provincial Football Union president N. J. "Piffles" Taylor. The trophy was first awarded in 1948, replacing the earlier Hugo Ross Trophy which served an identical function.

In 1995, as part of the failed American expansion, the Taylor Trophy was awarded to the champions of the Northern Division.
