Canadian Mathematical Olympiad


Canadian Mathematical Olympiad

The Canadian Mathematical Olympiad (CMO), is, as the name suggests, the national Olympiad of Canada. It is run by the Canadian Mathematical Society and sponsored by the company Sun Life Financial. [ [http://www.math.ca/Competitions/CMO/ Canadian Mathematical Olympiad (CMO) ] ] The Olympiad plays several roles in Canadian mathematics competitions, most notably being Canada's main team selection process for the International Mathematical Olympiad.

Qualification

Qualification for the CMO is usually through the Canadian Open Mathematics Challenge, though only "official" participants of that contest can enter. Generally, the cutoff for the CMO on that contest is in the 70s. [http://cemc.uwaterloo.ca/english/contests/brochures/2008/COMC2007(E).pdf]

Awards
