Date and Time

The 2022 CJMC will be held on Thursday, November 17, 2022 in North and South America and on Friday, November 18, 2022 in the rest of the world.

CMS Inclusion Initiative

The CMS is committed to contributing to a more inclusive environment in the mathematical community. Funding will be made available for students in Canada who identify as Black or Indigenous to participate in the 2022 CJMC free of charge. For more information, please visit the CMS Inclusion Initiative page.


Normally, all registration is done by teachers or school staff through the Teachers’ Portal, which is where they also receive the results when markedStudents do not normally register themselves.

School Registration

Registration for the CJMC is now open. The registration deadline for online exams and emailed PDF exams (printed locally) is November 13th. For paper copies of the exams (printed and shipped to you), the deadline is November 3rd. 

Student Self-Registration

This is only for students in Canada whose schools are not participating with a teacher/coordinator.

If you are a student in Canada whose school is not organizing participation in the CJMC but you still want to participate as an individual, you might be able to do so through one of our Open Writing Centres, operated by our partner universities.  They can proctor you through zoom or a similar tool.  There are limited spaces that will likely fill up before the November 13th deadline. These spaces are only reserved for those students who have registered and paid using the Self-Registration form below. 

Note: The CMS Inclusion Initiative is intended for school registrations only and is not available to self-registered students.

Format: Online or On Paper

As in 2021, the CMS is offering the CJMC this year as an online exam (students interact directly with our website as they solve the problems), but we also offer the option for it to be done on paper.  In both cases, the exam is to be written under proctor supervision.

The online version is the most commonly selected version. Teachers/proctors monitor students as they connect to our testing site using their devices.  You can read our detailed instructions and video about the CJMC Online Proctoring.

For the paper version, the CMS either prints and couriers the exam papers to the proctor/teacher, or emails it to them to be printed locally at the school.  After the exam period ends, the proctor packages the exams up and sends them by courier to a specified address.  For schools in Canada, the courier is pre-arranged for Nov 18th and pre-paid by the CMS.  Non-Canadian schools must pay their own courier fees.
