The Canadian Computing Competition (CCC) is a fun challenge for secondary school students with an interest in programming. It is an opportunity for students to test their ability in designing, understanding and implementing algorithms.
Junior Level — any student with elementary programming skills
Senior Level — any student with intermediate to advanced programming skills
Any student may choose to write any level (Junior or Senior) of the contest.
The CCC is written in February. The CCO is invitation only and written in May. See details for current year.
Schools that have not registered for previous contests are encouraged to participate, and can start by filling out a New School Application form.
The contest is written in schools. More information for the supervising teachers is available. Please also see more details about the competition including its structure, allowed programming languages, rules and format.
We encourage students to prepare. Places to begin include:
If you are interested in participating in the CCC but have not learned how to program, then you might want to investigate CS Circles.
We recognize top-performing students.
Approximately 20 of the top CCC Senior contestants classified as Canadian School Official are invited to the CCO, held at the University of Waterloo. This week-long event involves workshops, a contest and other extra-curricular activities. It is also used to determine participation in the International Olympiad in Informatics (IOI).
