They do. The CSL. But it's just not good for Canadian football development. Much better to have them in a more reputable league. Few leagues have "foreign" teams in their leagues:

Swansea are Welsh and in the English Premier League (Cardiff currently 1st in the Championship and could be promoted whilst other Welsh teams in the pyramid include Wrexham, Newport County and Colwyn Bay)

Berwick Rangers play in the Scottish League system despite being in England.

Andorra FC play in Spain despite being in Andorra
San Marino Calcio play in Italy despite being in San Marino.
