Canadian Math Kangaroo Contest



The only training activities controlled and administered by the Canadian Math Kangaroo Contest (CMKC) organization are the ones advertised through our website, our Facebook page, or our mailing list. As of this moment, these training activities include online and on-campus training, as well as online enrichment classes.

Although we encourage educators from public or private schools or tutoring centres to use our publicly available materials in their learning activities, there are NO institutions in Canada (except for the ones hosting the contest) that are authorized by us to provide training on our behalf. The CMKC has no control over the quality and the rigour of these activities.
