For over a thousand years, the game of chess has drawn a devoted following in nations all around the globe. And yet its true potential as an educational tool has only more recently begun to be realized. Chess Institute of Canada is a world leader in curriculum-based scholastic chess programming, where the ancient game is used as a vehicle for delivering profound life lessons for the challenges of today.
Beyond spatial thinking and sportsmanship, CIC chess programs change the way players think about themselves, the situations they’re in, and the choices that lie ahead – while they are engaged and inspired by everything this mental martial art has to offer. We’d love to show you more about the life-changing impact of our chess programs!
Our life-changing intervention programs help people of all ages overcome a variety of challenges.

There are many opportunities to support various facets of our mission. High school students can volunteer with chess clubs and tournaments, community groups can adopt a school in a priority neighbourhood or help an individual child attend a program their family could not afford, and we rely on donors to keep innovative outreach programs engaging youth at risk and turning lives around.Donate
