Collective Bargaining Agreement
The current Collective Bargaining Agreement between the CFL and CFLPA was ratified June 13, 2014. The agreement lasts five years through the 2018 season, expiring the day before the 2019 training camp starts.
A copy of the 2014 CBA will be posted here as soon as it can be sourced. If you can provide a copy of any official CFL documents, please contact me. For historical purposes, a summary of the 2010 agreement and the new performance enhancing drug testing policy is available.
