The following gives an overview of key dates for the national on-line training program and exam, the Ontario Chemistry Olympiad, the National Camp, and the International Chemistry Olympiad.

PLEASE NOTE: Changes continue to be made in light of the current pandemic situation

As a result of the continuing restrictions due to COV2/Covid-19, the CCC exams (parts A & B) will be held on-line on Friday April 24th. Student self-registration is required: The CCO (part C) exam has been postponed to May. There are provisional plans in place for the IChO to take place on-line hosted by Turkey, but details are not yet available.

Important Changes:

Students wishing to be considered for the four-person national team that will attend the International Chemistry Olympiad must fulfill ALL of the following criteria:

In addition, the four members of the national team must be available to attend pre-departure training, and be prepared to contribute up to $2000 towards the cost of attending the 51st International Chemistry Olympiad (although we expect this cost to be much lower; bursaries may also be available).

To be considered for the Canadian National Camp, students must have written the April CCC/CCO exam (parts A & C); registration information for this exam will be sent to all high school chemistry teachers some time in early 2020. Students must also participate in the on-line preparation program and write the March Take-home exam if they wish to attend the Ontario or National camps.
