Regretfully, we have to shut down the Outaouais chapter, following the resignation of the local committee members and the low registration numbers of the last few years. Candidates living or studying in this region can register in another city (such as Ottawa or Montréal), as out-of-chapter participants, by paying a $300 additional fee.
Let’s not forget that the real cost of running a large-scale competition like the CMC is much greater than what is covered by the participants’ base registration fees alone. The chapters have to make up the difference on a per candidate basis. That is why additional fees are charged to participants that are not supported by a CMC chapter.
