"Checkmate! The Time has Come to Recognize Chess as a Sport in Canada"

Are you a chess lover and proud Canadian? Do you believe that the strategic game of chess deserves recognition as a sport in our country? If so, now is your chance to make your voice heard and support the movement to officially recognize chess as a sport in Canada!

For years, chess enthusiasts have been advocating for their beloved game to receive the recognition it deserves as a competitive and physically demanding activity. Despite its popularity, chess has not yet been officially recognized as a sport in Canada, and it’s time for that to change.

Recognizing chess as a sport in Canada would bring numerous benefits, including increased funding for chess programs, more opportunities for chess players to compete and train, and a greater appreciation for the mental and physical demands of the game.

But we can't do it alone. That's why we are calling on all Canadians who believe in the importance of chess to join us and sign the e-petition to recognize chess as a sport in Canada. By coming together and showing our support, we can show the Canadian government that chess deserves the same recognition and support as other sports in our country.

So what are you waiting for? Signing the e-petition is quick, easy, and only takes a few minutes. By taking this simple step, you can help make history and bring chess one step closer to the recognition it deserves in Canada.

Join us today and let’s checkmate this petition into motion!
