With all eight Canadian Premier League teams rapidly trying to flesh out their rosters ahead of the 2023 CPL season, we thought it might be nice to list all the current rosters in one spot.

On each team list you’ll find each club’s confirmed roster to date, and below that is a list of players awaiting contract updates, and confirmed departures. You can click their status to find the relevant articles.

Mobile viewers may need to rotate their phones to get the full view! We’re sorting out some kinks.
