There was an entire Canadian Football League season played without a final copy of the collective bargaining agreement, but it’s finally finalized.

It was ratified by the Canadian Football League Players’ Association with a 74 per cent approval from players in May 2019. The CFL has released the comprehensive version of the collective bargaining agreement in January 2020.

All 123 pages with complete details are available. The agreement lasts three years through the 2021 season and expires the day before 2022 training camps begin.
