Review of the season

The annual general meeting was held in Toronto on Saturday April 7, 1951. Hamilton Austins joined the league.

Toronto St. Andrews won the league championship. St. Andrews, Ulster United, Toronto Ukraina and East End Canadians qualified for the NSL Play-off finals. As it was very late in the season St. Andrews and Ulster United decided not play their game.

The play-off match between Toronto Ukraina and East End Canadians ended up as being the only play-off game being played. Ukraina won 1-0 and was awarded the NSL play-off championship.

Ulster United won the Dominion Cup finals.
