From the CIS eligibility FAQ:

athletes who have been charged with a year of eligibility or a season of competition in four separate academic years within a non-Canadian post-secondary jurisdiction, such as the NCAA, are ineligible for CIS competition.
CIS student-athletes have 5 years of eligibility. If you were to transfer from NCAA to CIS after your first year in the NCAA you'd have to sit 365 days from your last NCAA game and then still have four years of eligibility left (the same as if you transferred from another CIS school). However the CIS some time ago decided to crack down on "one-year wonders" who graduated in the States and then were recruited to come and play just one year on CIS teams (it was a problem in basketball and football).
