CBBF Athlete Code of Ethics

With the recent outbursts from some of the athletes who recently competed at the CBBF National Bodybuilding event that are being shared on social media, the CBBF would like to remind all athletes of the CBBF Code of Conduct which is located on the CBBF website ByLaw 15 Athlete Code of Ethics.

The recent disparaging remarks made against specific judges was inappropriate, derogatory, offensive and insulting to the entire CBBF.

The CBBF will not tolerate online bullying and should anyone decide to take this route, the CBBF will take immediate action to suspend the athlete (s) indefinitely from participating in any IFBB/ CBBF sanctioned event in any capacity.

The CBBF Executive

Avec les récents agissements de certains athlètes qui ont récemment participé au Championnat Canadien CBBF qui circulent sur les médias sociaux, la CBBF tient à rappeler que tous les athlètes doivent se conformer au Code de conduite de la CBBF, code disponible sur le site web de la CBBF.

Les remarques récemment faites contre des juges spécifiques étaient inappropriées, dérogatoires, offensantes et insultantes pour l’ensemble de la CBBF.

La CBBF ne tolérera pas la cyberintimidation et si quelqu’un décide de prendre cette voie, la CBBF prendre des mesures immédiates pour suspendre indéfiniment le(s) athlète(s) de participer à un événement sanctionné IFBB/CBBF.

CBBF athletes competing in 2016 NPC North Americans

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.

Posing Attire for Women’s Physique Class

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:


  • Connectors that are stitched to the fabric of the suit are allowed.
  • Connectors that are not stitched to the fabric of the suit will be disallowed.


We apologize for any confusion that may have been caused to the athletes.
