The International Mathematical Olympiad (IMO) is the world championship mathematics competition for high-school students. Canada has proudly participated in the IMO for over thirty years.

Team members are chosen based on their results in previous competitions and their eligibility to represent Canada at the IMO. Two important Canadian competitions on the road to the IMO are the Canadian Open Mathematics Challenge (COMC) and the Canadian Mathematical Olympiad (CMO).
