Why? Cégep and NCAA teams don't choose what division they belong to. There are criteria and you need to meet them. One of the most important criteria IMHO is the need for cégep teams to win 70% of their games over the last two years I think to apply (and that doesn't mean you'll be accepted) in a higher division. This way, you have to prove on the field that you belong to this division.

Again, why? Cégep and NCAA division 2 and 3 teams don't have access to the division 1 playoffs. I don't really care honestly if division 2 teams want to get crushed by division 1 teams in the playoffs but I really don't think it's necessary. They could easily have their own championships. With a good and fair relegation system in place, the best division 2 teams could eventually climb into division 1.
