Processing and Shipping Fees

Please note that a $5.00 processing fee applies to all contest orders.

For all the contests that are written on paper (except the Canadian Team Mathematics Contest), there is a shipping fee to cover the cost of sending packages:

  • $5.00 per order for schools in Canada
  • 15% of the order fee for schools outside Canada (minimum charge of $10.00)

For schools writing the Fryer, Galois, Hypatia, Euclid, Canadian Senior and Intermediate Mathematics Contests, and/or the Pascal, Cayley and Fermat Contests on paper, the school is responsible for independently arranging and paying for the shipping of completed contests back to the CEMC.

Order Minimums and Other Fees

For the Gauss Contest and Beaver Computing Challenge, there is a minimum order of 10 contests.

For the Gauss Contest only:

  • Large orders are discounted after the first 500 to $4.50 per contest
  • HST/GST is charged based on provincial rates
    15% HST in NS, NB, NL, and PEI, 13% HST in ON
    5% GST in non-participating HST provinces
  • Taxes apply to Canadian orders only. International orders are tax-exempt, according to the Excise Tax Act Canada.

Refunds and Payment Options

We do not provide refunds or credits for unused contests.

We accept all major credit cards. If your school cannot pay via credit card, please contact us.

If you are using a school or corporate credit card, please make sure you know the billing address and postal code/zip code connected to the card. This is a new security requirement to approve your order using this payment method. Contact your school administrator or card owner to confirm the proper address if you are unsure or if the payment failed.
