Georgian College announced today that it has joined Esport Canada Post-Secondary (ECPS). Esport Canada Post-Secondary is the national voice for the development of programs whose goals are to elevate postsecondary esports while advocating on their behalf.

The college says this opportunity provides a valuable connection to learn best practices and share student success ideas to grow esports at the college and across other institutions

Georgian students started the CyberGrizzlies esports club in 2018. The club, which operates both in person and online, focuses on community building through esports and gaming, hosts fun game nights, and competes in tournaments.

The club has over 1,000 students and alumni in the Discord membership which is where everyone meets online. It’s currently the largest student club at the college.

Georgian will offer a new two-year diploma in Game – Design and Simulation starting September 2023.
