Canadian Footballers Association Canada Secures Recognition as Bargaining Agent by Canadian Premier League

Dec 20, 2022

Congratulations to the Canadian Footballers Association Canada  (“PFA Canada”) which has just achieved recognition nation wide as the exclusive bargaining agent of all players under contract to Canadian Premier League (“CPL”) professional soccer teams. The recognition follows a successful representation vote, in which 84% of players voted, and PFA Canada received 100% support from those casting ballots. Ian Fellows and Simon Blackstone have been working closely with PFA Canada to ensure that players have a strong voice in collective bargaining. PFA Canada retained UPFH to assist them in securing recognition by the CPL.  Ian Fellows was appointed General Counsel to PFA Canada in 2022. Click here to see the article by TSN.
