There’s labour peace in the CFL.

The league and CFL Players’ Association have come to terms on a new collective bargaining agreement.

The tentative deal replaces a five-year contract that’s set to expire Saturday.

As a result, players will be instructed to attend the start of CFL training camps, which open Sunday across the country.

A statement from the league says the deal is “subject to ratification by the players and approval of the league’s Board of Governors.”
