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.
Candidates require an invitation from the Canadian Mathematical Society in order to participate:
In order to be eligible to write the CMO and receive prizes, the student:
Students who 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.
The Canadian Mathematical Olympiad is managed by the CMO Committee of the Canadian Mathematical Society. The terms of reference it operates under can be found here.
