The 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.
Congratulations to 2016 CMO Champion Kai Sun of AB Lucas Secondary School in London, Ontario who has earned this year's Canadian Mathematical Olympiad Cup and $2,000 cash!

The Canadian Mathematical Olympiad 2017 will be held on 29 March, 2017.
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 choose to write the CMO agree to allow the CMS to publish their names and schools when announcing contest results.
[New for 2016]:
Official results are posted in two divisions: (1) students competing within Canada (the Canadian division) and (2) students competing abroad (the International division). Actual scores are not displayed publicly but students will be informed of their own scores.
The Championship title, the Cup and the prize money are only awarded to students in the Canadian division.
Prizes (Canadian division only): If there are no ties, the First Prize winner in the Canadian Mathematical Olympiad receives the CMO Cup and $2000. In addition, the Second Prize winner receives $1500, the Third Prize winner receives $1000 and students earning an Honourable Mention (up to six students) receive $500 each. In the case of ties, prizes are pooled upwards.
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.
