The 2021 Club de Foot Montréal season was the club's 28th season of existence, and their 10th in Major League Soccer, the top tier of the American soccer pyramid. This was the first season under the club's new name, being known as the Montreal Impact up until this point.

Due to COVID-19 cross-border restrictions imposed by the Canadian government, CF Montréal along with two other Canadian MLS teams are currently playing home matches in the United States while also sharing stadiums with other American MLS teams. The team is temporarily playing home matches at Inter Miami CF's DRV PNK Stadium since the start of the season.[2] During the 2021 CONCACAF Gold Cup qualification, in which DRV PNK Stadium became one of the hosting stadiums for the tournament, CF Montréal also played at other MLS Stadiums where it would not cause a conflict with the Gold Cup qualifier rounds. On July 14, MLS announced that CF Montréal were allowed to play one home matches on July 17 with FC Cincinnati although they will continue to work with the Canadian Government regarding plans on future home matches.[3][4] On July 23, MLS announced that CF Montréal would be allowed to play home matches in Canada for August.[5]

Outside of the MLS, CF Montréal won their 5th Canadian Championship after defeating rival, Toronto FC 1–0.
