Canadian Improv Games National Tournament & Festival

Each year, students from across Canada travel to Ottawa to perform at the Canadian Improv Games National Tournament & Festival. It’s a truly memorable experience filled with workshops, field trips in the Nation’s Capital, performance opportunities and other unique social activities.

There are 3 ways for students to participate in the National Tournament & Festival:

National Competing Team

    • As a finalist in your regional tournament, your team automatically advances to participate in the National Tournament & Festival as a National Competing Team. If you are new to Canadian Improv Games, look for a regional program here.
    • Student teams can also qualify to participate as a National Competing Team at the National Tournament & Festival as a finalist in the Canadian Improv Games Online Wildcard Competition. Learn more about the Online Wildcard Competition here.

National Festival Participant

    • High School teams who do not advance as finalists through their regional tournament or the Online Wildcard Tournament, are encouraged to participate at the National Tournament & Festival as a festival team through the National Festival Participant Experience. Here students enjoy access to all the same workshops, field trips and activities as competing teams, while also getting a chance to see the National Tournament in action as a participating audience member. Learn more about the National Festival Participant Experience here.
