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, from 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.
