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.
The CMS wishes to thank the sponsors and partners who make our competitions program successful.
The 2020 Canadian Mathematical Olympiad (CMO) will be held on March 12, 2020.
The CMO is a three hour competition, to start at 9AM local time in provinces west of Ontario (or if you are in Central, Mountain or Pacific Time Zone) or at 1PM local time in Ontario or provinces east of that (or if you are in Eastern or Atlantic Time Zone).
⇒ The CJMO is an olympiad style competition for younger students. Like for the CMO, the invitation to the CJMO is based on the results of the COMC and the Repêchage. Invitees will be the top students in grade 10 and below. Invitations to the CJMO will be sent out after the Repêchage has been graded. The CJMO exam will be written at the same time as the CMO - on Thursday, March 12, 2020.
Congratulations to CMO Champion William Zhao who attends Richmond Hill High School in Richmond Hill!
William has earned this year's Canadian Mathematical Olympiad Cup and $2,000 cash!

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.
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.
