CFL news in 1967[edit]

The offices of the CFL was set up at 11 King Street, inside the Montreal Trust Building in Toronto, with Senator Keith Davey as CFL Commissioner. Later on, Davey was succeeded on Thursday, February 23 by Ted Workman and then later, Allan McEachern.

The Committee on One League (COO) made recommendations to bring operating matters to be under the control of the league; it was later approved by the Board of Governors.

The Canadian Rugby Union changed their name to Canadian Amateur Football Association (now Football Canada) on Sunday, January 1 and turned over the Grey Cup trophy to the CFL.

In addition, the CFL set up and establishes the Players' Pension Fund.

The Hamilton Tiger-Cats wore special helmets to commemorate Canada's Centennial as the country turned 100 years old.
