Gore was released from the Packers on August 28, 2010 without ever playing an NFL regular season game.
Soon after, on September 5, 2010, it was announced that Gore had signed with the BC Lions. After a strong performance in the Lions' 2011 training camp, Gore earned a starting position on offence as a receiver.

On May 4, 2017, at the age of 30, Gore announced his retirement from professional football on the same day he was sworn in as a member of the Vancouver Police Department. He finished his CFL career having played for six seasons, accumulating 307 receptions for 3,911 yards and 20 touchdowns over 113 games.
