We have worked out a deal with our national partner where the cost of your Franchise Fee is covered!  Our friends at 888poker are supportive of grassroots tournament poker throughout Canada!  This offer is limited to just the next THREE Franchises, so act quickly.

The 3-step details of this plan:

  • Register a minimum of twenty-four (24) players to form your local ‘league’.  Your Players will need to register their full name, email address, and a telephone number on the Canadian Poker League (CPL).  

  • Each member of your league is required to establish a free online player account at 888poker.  Send or publish this link and have your members create their account; (no deposit is required):


  • Every local Franchise agrees to host at least two (2) free-to-play live events each month, and one (1) monthly online tournament at 888poker for its members.  The Franchisee will also promote the weekly National Online Home Game to its membership, in order to encourage national participation.

The Canadian Poker League welcomes poker players that would like to operate a Franchise in a protected territory.  You will be offering your players the opportunity to participate in a national program to reward our best players with travel packages to play tournament poker on the world stage!

Start-up costs are low, in order to ensure that you can operate profitably.  We want poker players to offer the poker players in their community with this unique opportunity to complete locally and qualify to win a national prize package.  Contact us to receive a prospectus.
