The Thanksgiving Day Classic is an annual doubleheader held on Thanksgiving in the Canadian Football League. It is one of two days in which the league plays on a Monday afternoon; the other is the Labour Day Classic. Unlike the Labour Day Classic, the teams in the Thanksgiving Day Classic rotate each year; however, the Montreal Alouettes have typically hosted the early game in years there is no team in Ottawa (1997-2001 and 2007-2012), much in the same way the Detroit Lions and Dallas Cowboys host the NFL's Thanksgiving games. Ottawa (in its various forms, the Rough Riders, Renegades, and a third team yet to be named) is Montreal's traditional Labour Day rival. The games also lack a presenting sponsor as the Labour Day Classic games have. The Hamilton Tiger-Cats hosted CFL games annually from 1973 to 1982, with the Edmonton Eskimos hosting the nightcap in most of those years; Hamilton also hosted three times in four years from 1990 to 1993 and will again host a Thanksgiving matchup in 2013 due to stadium construction disrupting their hosting of the 2013 Labour Day Classic.

Despite Canadian Thanksgiving being a legal holiday in the United States (Columbus Day), none of the CFL's American teams ever played the Thanksgiving Day Classic. The games have also not been televised in the United States since 2009.
