The CIG is struggling to recover from the pandemic. We need your help to raise $100,000 so this season isn't our final "And Scene"

IMPROVCAMP 2023 is here!

Improvcamp is back for another amazing year! August 14-20 on Gambier Island at Camp Fircom! See you there!


We are always looking or volunteers  across Canada. Our organization is made up of a large, wacky, and wonderful group of volunteers and are always looking for more individuals like yourself to join their team.


Today, CIG is home to one of the largest and most geographically dispersed theatre festivals in the world. We’ve sure come a long way since our beginnings as a humble educational adventure in Ottawa in 1977.
