The CBBF is Canada's only IFBB recognized governing body for amateur bodybuilding, fitness and body fitness (figure) competition. This is the only Canadian organization that qualifies competitors for competition at the three annual IFBB World Championships, and the only one that awards competitors an IFBB Pro Card. Participating in CBBF events means you are able to compete with the best athletes in Canada who qualify through stringent tiered systems in their host provinces and are judged by qualified provincial and national judges. Only those competitions that appear on our Events listing listing under each of the sections are sanctioned by the CBBF.Read More
Good Afternoon everyone,
After careful consideration and review of all proposals received for the promotion of the 2017 CBBF National events we are please to announce the following schedule for 2017:
International Event Qualifier May 6th 2017
Promoters : M Joe Spinello
Canadian Bodybuilding Bikini and Classic Physique July 1, 2017

We are very excited to be working with these promoters as all have extensive experience and we look forward to 2017 being as successful as 2016!
Full details to follow…
Although there is a deadline and late entry fee listed on the official site for the North Americans, Mr. Udit has confirmed there is no late entry penalty for CBBF athletes.
In order to avoid the late payment fee all CBBF entries must be processed manually and not through the online application process.
CBBF athletes must receive a letter of recommendation from the CBBF, at the time of a request we will forward the paper-based application with your letter of recommendation for processing. Entry fee payment must be sent in USD funds.
All requests for letters and entry forms must be sent to CBBFGeorgina@eastlink.ca.
It has recently come to the attention of the CBBF Executive that there has been some confusion on the rules regarding posing attire for Women’s Physique.
This is not a rule change that was recently implemented. This rule was in place last year for our 2015 CBBF National Events. We do understand that style evolves and suits can change drastically from year to year.
The CBBF proactively made the decision last year to limit connectors on Women’s physique suits to eliminate the possibility of suit malfunction for the athletes. Straps holding the top together or straps holding the bottoms together being constructed primarily of connectors have a higher chance of breaking in a Women’s Physique posing routine than on a bikini athlete as their posing has far less movement than a 60 second posing routine.
The following rule will be implemented for our 2016 Figure Fitness Physique event:
DETACHABLE CONNECTORS FOR WOMEN’S PHYSIQUE ARE NOT ALLOWED
** THE RULE IS TO MINIMIZE SUIT MALFUNCTIONS DURING POSING ROUTINE **
We apologize for any confusion that may have been caused to the athletes.

We have recently discussed the parameters around some of the classes and one item that came up was crossovers between the new classic physique class and open bodybuilding and “Will the CBBF allow athletes to cross over between the two classes?”.
In the past we did not have consistency on this rule as we did allow classic bodybuilding and open bodybuilding athletes to cross over between the disciplines at the IFBB event qualifier. Effective immediately and including the 2016 events we will not allow crossovers at any of the CBBF National events including the IFBB event qualifier.
One of the most compelling reasons is athlete ability to have an opportunity to become a part of the World Team. With allowing crossovers in past we have had cases where the same athlete wins both disciplines and if for some reason, such as in 2014 when such winner was disqualified, it did not allow an athlete from either discipline to participate on Team Canada.
I am pleased to announce after careful consideration we have confirmed all three CBBF National Events for 2016.
We were pleased to have received so many proposals for consideration.
The following are the dates and locations, more information will be communicated in the coming months.
Je suis heureux d’annoncer, après mûre réflexion, que nous avons confirmé tous les trois événements nationaux CBBF pour 2016. étions heureux d’avoir reçu tant de propositions aux fins d’examen. Voici les dates et les lieux, plus d’informations seront communiquées dans les prochains mois.
