Ethics Rules[edit]

There is a circle with a message "Not allowed under federal ethics rules" but it doesn't seem to refer to anything, except maybe the * in the Endowment for the Military College. I'm not sure fi this the fix

UdeM[edit]

Added talk page and changed U of Montreal link to reflect Carabins nickname. --Coryma 03:00, 4 August 2006 (UTC)

Curling[edit]

In the spring of 2005, CIS members voted to add both men's and women's curling to its roster of sports. CIS curling competition will commence in September 2006.Was curling added? If so, then these two sentences should be deleted, and curling should be listed in the currently sponsored sports. I looked on the CIS web page, and didn't see curling listed. It could be that CIS just hasn't updated their web page yet, but I wanted to check before I made the change. —Preceding unsigned comment added by RLent (talkcontribs) 12:58, 23 February, 2007 (UTC)

I will inquire into this. --Scani 21:24, 27 March 2007 (UTC)
It was added but like Golf it is a Championship run in conjunction with the national governing body, in this case the Canadian Curling Association. --Coppercanuck (talk) 19:20, 22 June 2008 (UTC)

Scholarships[edit]

I changed the section about scholarships since technically speaking, CIS schools do not offer athletic scholarships; meaning they do not award scholarships for athletic ability alone, unlike the NCAA. They do offer awards, which a minority of CIS athletes get- I provided a reference about this- but they are always tied to high academic achievement; again completely different to the States where only passing the bare minimum of course work is sufficent to keep the scholarship. The federal government and national teams like Basketball Canada do fund some athletes but this is not the university, plus private fund raisers are often called "athletic scholarships" but again, it is not part of the university's official administration. I thought it was a bit misleading to say that some CIS schools do offer partial athletic scholarships, since the NCAA does offer them.--Mikerussell 01:26, 10 April 2007 (UTC)

Television rights[edit]

Can't we say who has the television rights for CIS tournaments? --205.151.6.5 (talk) 15:55, 18 March 2008 (UTC)

sports and seasons[edit]

There should be sections or articles on each sanctioned sport and the seasons for which they were sanctioned. 70.51.11.210 (talk) 12:54, 19 August 2008 (UTC)

Name Change | U Sports —> U SPORTS[edit]

{subst:requested move|U SPORTS|reason=The organization rebranded so that the name is U SPORTS in all caps. This is more than just a stylization, it is their legal name. I cover U SPORTS every day as Editor-in-Chief of the Canadian University Sports Network, and this is an area that the league is trying to clear up. http://en.usports.ca/information/about_cis/index Here is a link to their official website that details their brand.} — Preceding unsigned comment added by Adamkjenkins (talkcontribs) 15:25, 24 August 2017 (UTC)

Goes against the manual of style. See: Wikipedia:Manual of Style/Trademarks. -- Earl Andrew - talk 15:37, 24 August 2017 (UTC)
