Welcome to the Toronto Regional Canadian Improv Games Program!
Established in 1986, the Toronto program is part of a national network of regional teams that join the Canadian Improv Games through their local high school. During the school year, students gain access to a number of exciting and unique programs that encourage exploring the art of improv, learning life skills like Positivity, Communication, Leadership, Commitment and Teamwork, making new friends and having fun.
For more information, to register your high school in our 2018 program or to get involved as a volunteer, player or coach, please contact our National Office at firstname.lastname@example.org
