Canadian Chemistry Contest

  • Crimson Education
  • Worldwide, China
Multiple Competition


The Canadian Chemistry Contest (CCC) fosters an appreciation of chemistry as a career for talented young people and promotes national excellence in chemistry at the high school/cégep level. The CCC is intended for the top 10% of Canadian high school and cégep students under 20 years of age taking chemistry. The CCO is intended for the top 5% of these students.

The Canadian Chemistry Olympiad (CCO) is an annual event that aims to promote interest in chemistry amongst high school students. Participation in the Canadian National Olympiad Finals or an International Olympiad is a tremendous experience and a unique opportunity to travel and meet fellow students from around the world who have similar interests.

Chemistry Institute of Canada (CIC) was formed in 1945 as the national science and technology organization of chemists, chemical engineers, and chemical technologists. It is now an umbrella organization for three constituent chemical societies—the Canadian Society for Chemistry, the Canadian Society for Chemical Engineering, and the Canadian Society for Chemical Technology.

Global Awards
For judging the global awards, Canadian competitors will be ranked first by their overall scores in the top 10%, creating boundaries for the global awards. Competitors from other countries are not ranked together with their Canadian competitors, but are compared by the same boundaries. Chinese competitors with good results will therefore have an increased chance of receiving an award.
