The Sun Life Financial Canadian Mathematical Olympiad (CMO) is Canada's premier national advanced mathematics competition. Candidates require an invitation from the Canadian Mathematical Society in order to participate.
Thank you to all those who participated in the 48th Canadian Mathematical Olympiad, held on March 30, 2016. All students invited to write the CMO are granted a free one-year online subscription to Crux Mathematicorum, a CMS published problem-solving journal geared to top mathematical problem-solvers. The competition papers are being graded and results will be posted as soon as they are available.

In order to be eligible to write the CMO and receive prizes, the student:
Students who choose to write the CMO agree to allow the CMS to publish their names and schools when announcing contest results.
The First Prize winner in the Canadian Mathematical Olympiad receives the Sun Life Cup and $2,000. In addition, the Second Prize winner receives $1,500, the Third Prize winner receives $1,000 and students earning an Honourable Mention (approximately six students) receive $500 each.
It is important to emphasize that any student who is invited to write the CMO should be aware that success will require mathematics at a higher level than is taught in most schools, and therefore should prepare specifically for the competition. The CMS has several resources available for competitors.
