The Canadian Xtreme Paintball League is the top professional X-Ball league in Canada. It contains three conferences but is adding a minor conference in Atlantic Canada:

Players are not required to live within these boundaries to play in a conference, but generally all events for each conference are held in those boundaries.

There are four divisions of play in the Canadian Xtreme Paintball League: CXBL Elite,CXBL, MXL, RXL and CX4. Each year, the top team in each division (with the exception of CX4) is promoted to the higher division, and the bottom-placed team is relegated to the division below (again, with the exception of CX4).

The CXBL was founded in 2005. At that time it consisted of just two divisions, the Ontario Xball League (OXBL) and the Quebec Xball League (QXBL). After the first year, the league expanded to include a Western Conference, and the OXBL and QXBL were renamed the Central and Eastern Conferences, respectively. The Western and Atlantic Conferences were later folded after the 2011 and 2012 season, respectively. Each year, the CXBL has expanded to include new divisions. MXL was added in 2006, CX4 was added in 2007, RXL was added in 2008, and RT5, which uses the RaceTo5 format with 10bps ramping, was added for the 2013 season. This has allowed a greater number of franchised teams to compete in the league, and has greatly increased the league's exposure in global paintball media outlets. PaintballAccess.com has signed on the provide some exclusive video content throughout the 2013 season.

The league prides itself in being the sole league in the world to still utilize the "original Xball format". CXBL games still utilize two 25-minute halves, 15 balls-per-second ramping, or semi auto, and full 2:00 and 5:00 penalties.
