Well, now that we've been active on the forum for a little while now, we should probably announce that we exist! eSports Canada is a not-for-profit organization dedicated to growing and promoting electronic sports in Canada.
Originating in Toronto, eSports Canada is a volunteer-run organization currently expanding its operations throughout Ontario and has a recent foothold in British Columbia. Our aim is to be involved in every province by coordinating with dedicated individuals who wish to contribute to the advancement of eSports.
eSports Canada focuses on a variety of service offerings including: +coordination and organization of major tournament viewings +entertainment through VODs and live streams +updates on industry news and releases in regards to Starcraft 2 +tournament hosting
Right now our biggest aim is to increase our visibility in all provinces. This should help us attract motivated volunteers and corporate sponsors.
We need your help!
Please go to our Facebook page and click the Like button. This helps spread the word about our organization, gives us an idea where our fans live, and potential sponsors look at how popular an organization is before deciding to sponsor it. The more engaged our fans are with us, the more we can do as an organization.
We are actively seeking self-motivated, experienced individuals capable of working with deadlines dedicated to eSports. In particular, we require:
Webmaster/web designer to help us run our website, especially with design elements and integration with social plugins.
Graphic designer to assist us in creating professional-quality promotional material for our tournaments and BarCrafts.
If you are interested in either of these positions please let us know on the Facebook page or by email at info [at] esportscanada.org
You guys should get in contact with us over in Quebec! Right now, I believe there's myself helping out with BarCraft MTL, CyberActiv.ca, SC2QC, QCStarCraft, LAN ETS and Sympatico (who's managing Stim.tv) resides in Montreal.
Errol Pinto who works for IPL also is from Montreal.

I don't do facebook/twitter but I'd like to help any way I can. I'm a fairly decent programmer although I suck at design. Is there an IRC channel? The website has a link for forums but I'm guessing it's not yet implemented. #esportsca on Quakenet?
Love the initiative!

That would be brilliant. Even a league by city would be great too, get a bit of intercity competition for those of us who don't follow hockey!
I don't think any city could rival the bigs one..Toronto, vancouver and MTL would always win.
Quebec vs Ontario would be great though.
I'd be tempted to say the same thing, but I think most major universities have clubs now, although they might not have any amazingly good players, having more team would most probably end up being more fun. Maybe have a few teams per province, based on ladder ranking or something (ie. "Quebec bronze-gold")

Hi Steeveholt. You're right, we don't have working forums yet. We're not sure that we even want them! We also don't have an IRC channel. You're welcome to get in touch with us here on TL using the PMs or you can email us at the email above. We'd love to talk to you about it!
We'd also love to start getting interprovincial competitions going on, but to do that we need to spread the word!
