Excelsior Chess Club

Etobicoke, Ontario

The newly opened location welcomes people of all ages, beginners or already experienced. We pride ourselves in providing chess activities that enrich the lives of children and adults.

We have a fantastic team (arbiters and trainers) and our main goal is to use chess as a vehicle to develop confidence, cognitive skills and sportsmanship in children. We put the emphasis on learning and competing and also bring focus to becoming part of a team and having fun.

Recognize Chess as a Sport in Canada

Sign the Petition

Help the CFC “Recognize Chess as a Sport in Canada”

This is an opportunity for Canada to recognize chess as a sport and offer government funding for our training, tournaments, players, coaches and more. Achieving this milestone will give chess the funding it deserves to promote chess to anyone who wants to learn, regardless of their ages.

It will be closed for signatures on April 1st, so we much collect as many signatures as we can. After you sign the petition you will receive an email from the House of Commons Petitions to confirm your support.

Anyone who believes Chess should be recognized as a sport in Canada can vote!
