Provincial Championships

Upcoming CMSA provincial championships:

All the upcoming CMSA memory championships are announced both on the home page and on the memory sports section of this website. In 2019 we organized our first Quebec memory championship as well as our first British Columbia memory championship. We’re planning to make this a yearly tradition. If there’s enough interest, an Ontario memory championship as well as an Alberta memory championship will be our next priorities. If you’d like to see a memory championship being organized in your province, keep reading this page and get in touch with us!

Past CMSA provincial championships:

  • On March 23 2019 we had our very first provincial championship at Laval University in Quebec city. The event was a great success and we were amazed by all the students who managed some really impressive results with just a little bit of practice. The full results are online on this page. Local organizers and competitors are telling us they’re quite motivated to make this a yearly tradition. 
  • On July 13, current Canadian memory champion Braden Adams broke some new national records at the 2019 British Columbia memory championship. The rules and format of this particular event are explained on this page. We can’t currently confirm whether or not there will be some changes in 2020.

Want to see a memory championship in your province?

Almost all the pre-CMSA “provincial memory championships” in Canada have been improvised events where 1 to 3 competitors, usually just 1, would spend a few minutes memorizing a few cards and that was it. That’s cool, and it will still be possible to do just that if you want, but we’d like to try a different model. We’re calling for the formation of longer-term autonomous provincial organizations who would organize more ambitious events every year around the same dates. You can start very small of course, but aim to grow in the long term. Want to organize the very first Manitoba or Saskatchewan or Newfoundland provincial memory competition? Get in touch with us. We’ll offer pre-determined formats, step by step procedures and rulebook that you can choose to use or not to use. Want to keep it simple and only test competitors for random numbers and words? You can choose to do that. Want to try out something revolutionary that has never been done before? That’s also possible. As long as your proposal isn’t completely insane, we’ll promote your events and recognize your champions. Your organization or event can even have its own sub-page on where you can choose to post whatever you want. Click here to contact us.


What about mental math and cubing provincial championship?

Apart from our annual National Mental Math Championship, we aren’t currently planning any provincial mental math championship. However if you would like to organize one yourself, don’t hesitate to get in touch with us! If you’d like to organize a cubing competition, we suggest that you instead get in touch with the communities built around
