Regional Programs

The Canadian Improv Games core programming provides high school improv teams with educational resources, training and workshops that all culminate in annual performances and competitions at the regional and national level. Each year thousands of high school students from across Canada take part in our regional improv programs and finalists from each regional tournament then travels to Ottawa to perform at nationals in a 4-night festival at the National Arts Centre.

For over 40 years, students have enjoyed the thrill and excitement of participating in the Canadian Improv Games.  A place to make life-long friends, students have also praised their newly acquired talent and self-confidence, not to mention the endless fun that comes with taking part in this truly unique experience.
