The Canadian GeoOlympaid is a national, bilingual competition open to all students ages 16-19 who reside in Canada. This competition will feed into the International Geography Olympiad, an annual worldwide competition. The  ​Can Geo​ Olympiad will test each student’s knowledge and understanding of geographic skills and concepts. Team Canada members will be given the opportunity to work individually and as a group to discover the diversity and power of geography. They will experience firsthand how to better understand the world through a geographic lens and learn about the important role that they can play in effecting positive change in their world.
