We’re looking for 4-8 people to be a part of a Fundraising Committee for the 2023 Canadian Open Chess Championship to be held in July 2023 in Calgary. This is a great opportunity to meet interesting people, gain recognition and to give back to the community. Be part of a close knit group that will be instrumental in the success of the 2023 Canadian Open.

The CCC will provide training, support and cover any refreshments.

While Calgary will submit a bid on August 1st, 2021 to host the 2023 Canadian Open Chess Championship in Calgary, the first Canadian Open was held in 1956 in Montreal when 88 players participated in the newly formed tournament.

70 years ago in 1951 the Canadian Closed Chess Championship was held in Vancouver to determine the best Canadian chess player in Canada.
