Montreal Regional Program

Welcome to the Montreal Regional Canadian Improv Games Program! 

Established in the 90s, the Montreal 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 Regional Producer, Spencer Dunn at montreal@improv.ca

Regional Producer, Spencer Dunn

Spencer Dunn (he/him) has been involved with the Canadian Improv Games for over a decade. He’s done every job imaginable at a volunteer level and was hired on as the Head Trainer for the Canadian Improv Games in January of 2019. He organizes and runs the national festival and is currently the regional producer for Montreal, Moncton, Northern Ontario, and Tri-City regions. He was a member of The Making-Box Brigade (voted best live entertainment in Guelph 3 years in a row) and has performed improv in just about every province as well as at the Detroit Improv Festival. He enjoys slow breakfasts, long hikes, and gosh he’d love to live on a farm one day.

CIG Montreal Fun Fact:  The regional tournament trophy is a giant portrait of a Matador fighting a bull. You should also know that there will always be a bag of rice in “WHAT’S IN THE BOX” at a Montreal tournament.
