The Online Wildcard is an opportunity for registered Canadian Improv Games student teams from across Canada to perform the CIG events, receive feedback from CIG judges, and qualify for the National Tournament in Ottawa —  but instead of performing your scenes live for our judges, you’ll submit a video of your performance online.

A panel of expert judges will evaluate all the videos, and the team with the highest scores will get to compete at the National Tournament! Also, our excellent, cross-country volunteers will provide your team with a written adjudication to help further develop the team’s skills.


      • All the normal Canadian Improv Games rules apply: play four out of the five events (Theme and Life are mandatory), four minute time limit for all scenes, eight players maximum per team and no player substitutions between scenes, etc. For more information or clarification on the rules of the Canadian Improv Games, please consult the rulebook (, read your Discovering the Moment Coaches Manual or email us at
      • The suggestion for your Theme event is provided by us via a phone call or text message LIVE during your performance. All other suggestions for your scenes can be solicited from the audience as normal.
      • The video has to be filmed in one continuous take, all events back-to-back, with no editing. For further details and tips about filming your improv, visit
