The Canadian Intercollegiate Rugby Football Union was formed after the conclusion of the 1897 season.
In the Manitoba Rugby Football Union, the Royal Canadian Dragoons dropped out of competition in the spring of 1898. The three remaining teams finished the schedule in a three-way tie for first place. Tie-breaker games could not be scheduled as the college teams were involved in final exams.
