About

The Canadian Football League was formed in 1958 when the Western Interprovincial Football Union and Interprovincial Rugby Football Union broke away from the Canadian Rugby Union, and adopted more American Football style pf play. During the 1950s it can be seen as a AAA Football League, becoming a Major League in 1960 with the adoption of an inter-locking schedule and the renaming of the Western Inter-Provincial Football Union and the Inter-Provincial Rugby Football Union as the Western and Eastern Conferences.
