It All Starts Here
Canadian Mathematical Society Competitions

Competitions are an important part of learning mathematics and a fun activity for students of all ages. The CMS supports math competitions in many ways; running our own competitions to funding regional competitions to supporting Canadian involvement in international competitions. We also provide a wide variety of resources for students to prepare for competitions. Students are able to register for more than one competition if they wish to do so.
