Club de Foot Montréal announced that the "primary jersey for the 2023 season will not be available at this time". The club had planned to include an inscription in an Indigenous language on the jersey as part of their strategy for change of identity from the Impact to Club de Foot Montréal.

The "club are committed to developing lasting relationships with Indigenous communities, and as the consultation process with Indigenous communities is still ongoing, CF Montréal have decided to pause distribution of the 2023 primary jersey to strengthen its approach by listening, collaborating, and co-creating concrete initiatives with Indigenous communities.

The decision has received mixed reactions from fans, with some expressing disappointment while others are understanding of the club's commitment to Indigenous communities. Club de Foot Montréal have informed its fans that it will keep them updated on developments surrounding its plans moving forward.

In the meantime, the club will use the grey secondary jersey with the new badge, which will be used instead of the home jersey for the time being.
