In addition, the four members of the national team must be available to attend pre-departure training at the University of Toronto, and contribute $2000 towards the cost of attending the 50th International Chemistry Olympiad.
To be considered for the Canadian National Camp, students must have written the April CCC/CCO exam (parts A & C); registration information for this exam will be sent to all high school chemistry teachers some time in early 2017. Students must also participate in the on-line preparation program and write the March Take-home exam if they wish to attend the Ontario or National camps.
