Bike like this, especially in the 70s- mid 80s did not change a lot from year to year so narrowing it down to further may not be possible. There was not enough innovation to require huge model year changes and with the big post 'boom' down turn in the US market most companies had little incentive to make huge changes.
When looking at Bianchi catalogs on the Bulgier site, I have found them to only show the top few models. Also the location of your bike may have a lot to do with it too. If your in Europe or Canada looking at US catalog you may not find your exact bike. Your Canadian Moto Club may be our Sport or Tourer. Also one thing I learned from the book the Dancing Chain, apparently in the '70s the French were known to substitute parts rather carelessly and if they were running '79 Clubs and ran out of Tourny brakes they had little qualms about putting the Vancouvers on.
Looks like a decent ride just enjoy it.
