Can Geo Education to launch the Canadian Geography Olympiad


For the first time ever, four senior geography students will be selected through a Canadian Geography Olympiad to represent their nation at the International Geography Olympiad, to be held in Quebec City in August 2018. There, top 16- to 19-year-old students from around the world will showcase their talents in an exciting four-day competition. While the annual Can Geo Challenge has drawn thousands of Grade 4 to 10s to compete for the title of top geography student since the 1990s, Canada has never fielded a senior team for the international competition.

The purpose of the Olympiads is not only to test students’ knowledge and understanding of geographic skills and concepts, but to stimulate active interest in geographical and environmental studies among young people, and at the global level facilitate interactions between students from different countries, thereby contributing — even if in a small way — to the understanding between nations.
