A History of Canadian University Football

The Canada West Football Conference (CW) 1999 to the Present

  • 1999 - the CWUAA and the GPAC regrouped into one athletic association named the CWUAA or CW for short

  • The league had remained a stable five-team organization from 1970 until the 1999 season at which time it was joined by the University of Regina Rams (enabling the playing of a balanced schedule for the first time in its modern history)

  • 2002 - the balanced schedule was somewhat short-lived in that the league expanded to seven teams with the addition of the Simon Fraser University (SFU) Clan; the Clan had previously (1965 to 2001) played American four-down football in a college football conference south of the border
    • CW: Alberta, UBC, Calgary, Manitoba, Regina, Saskatchewan and SFU
