Canadian Football News in 1941[edit]

The Calgary Bronks left the WIFU and the Vancouver Grizzlies joined.

The IRFU was renamed to Eastern Canada Union for one season. The Hamilton Tigers did not participate in the Eastern Canada Union, due to World War II and the Toronto Balmy Beach Beachers of the ORFU joined. The Tigers would resume play in 1945.
