Welcome to the 2018 IMMC-Canada Award Ceremony!  This year, the contest problem is “A best hospital”: Suppose there are 4 or 5 hospitals reasonably accessible to your residence. You wish to pick the “best” hospital. How would you measure and choose the “best” of these local hospitals?

We had 22 teams participated the contests and 13 teams finished successfully. We have selected two best teams to represent Canada for the international level contest:  AY Jackson Secondary School from TDSB, ON and Walnut Grove Secondary School from B.C. We are still waiting for the results of international competition. The result from Canadian competition is summarized below:

Outstanding Papers (2, 9%)
