Welcome to the Tri-City Regional Canadian Improv Games Program!
Originally established in Waterloo in 2001, The Tri-City Regional Program now covers Kitchener, Guelph, Windsor, Grimsby as well as Waterloo. As part of a national network of regional teams that join the Canadian Improv Games through their local high school, 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 Jay Reid at firstname.lastname@example.org
