Canadian Mathematical Olympiad

(Redirected from Canadian MO)

The Canadian Mathematical Olympiad (CMO) is, as its name implies, the national mathematical Olympiad of Canada. Participants are selected based on performance on the Canadian Open Mathematics Challenge (COMC) and/or the Canadian Mathematical Olympiad Qualifying Repechage (CMOQR). The Olympiad is part of the selection process for the Canadian IMO team.

Like most Olympiads, the CMO requires test-takers to write a well-written solution. Since 1979, there has been one paper of five questions (each worth 7 points) on each Canadian Olympiad, though there were 10 questions before that. Test-takers can only use writing utensils, rulers, and compasses on the test.
