The 48th Sun Life Financial Canadian Mathematical Olympiad (Feb 29)

The 48th Canadian Mathematical Olympiad (CMO) will be held on Wednesday, March 30, 2016. In North America, South America, and Central America and in time zones covering these areas, the competition will take place from 9 a.m. to 12 noon. Elsewhere in the world, the 3 hour writing period will be arranged in consultation with the CMS. All exams will be proctored by officials who are not family-related to any of the participants being supervised.

The CMO is open only to students who have received a direct invitation from the Canadian Mathematical Society (CMS). The CMS will provide registration information to schools with eligible students in early March. Teachers must complete and submit the registration form with each student by March 18, 2016. Once registration is completed, the CMS will mail the competition kit directly to the exam proctoring official.
