Welcome to the Ottawa Regional Canadian Improv Games Program!
Established in 1977 as the inaugural Canadian Improv Games, the Ottawa regional program is the longest running! Today, the Ottawa CIG 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 Regional Director at email@example.com
Regional Producer, Zac Duval.

CIG Ottawa Fun Fact:
The Ottawa program is the oldest in the Canadian Improv Games history – welcome to where it all started! Originally founded as the Improv Olympics here in Ottawa in 1977, the name was shortly thereafter changed to Canadian Improv Games when the International Olympic Committee issued a cease-and-desist letter!
