Best Answer

Carl Robinson of Toronto FC in Major League Soccer (Both US and Canadian teams) makes $330K (US) a year.


Other professional teams in Canada (Vancouver, Montreal) play in the USL-1 which includes teams from the USA, Canada, and Puerto Rico. It is doubtful any player outside of MLS makes more than a 5 digit salary playing professional soccer in Canada.

Can a CFL player on the practice squad go to the NFL in the same season?

Generally, yes. However, there are rules regarding players being under contract to only one team. If a CFL player has an opportunity to play in the NFL, he first gets released from his CFL duties. Then, he signs an NFL contract. Dominique Dorsey recently missed the first half of the 2009 CFL season while he was signed with the Washington Redskins.
