Please note, all meeting attendees (e.g. participants, session organizers and speakers, CMS members, and students) are required to pay the appropriate registration fee.

This 75th year of the CMS was a challenge for the Society, which has historically used your registration fees at its semi-annual meetings to help offer its many services in support of the Canadian mathematical community.  But we are strong and will endure!   Your support helps us expand our programs and continue to offer affordable rates to junior researchers.

To make the meeting accessible for all and to balance the needs of your Society, we are offering two tiers of registration rates from which to choose.  The discounted COVID rate is significantly lower. We encourage all researchers who are able to do so to register at the regular rate, which includes access to several special value-added features:

  • free access to Maple software for 1 year,
  • Free access to Bolster Academy platform + 1 digital course for one semester (value 5.000 CAD)
  • 75% off selected titles from CMS-Springer Book Series,
  • complimentary registration for CMS Members to the Canadian Mathematical Education Study Group(CMESG) Meeting (which will be held virtually June 11-13, 2021), and
  • unlimited access to recordings from some of the 2021 Summer Meeting sessions. Recordings will be available in the coming weeks once all videos have been reviewed and moved into our Vimeo platform. An email will be sent out with access information once the videos are available. 

Registration of Other Attendees

If you wish to register someone else to the conference and pay their registration fee, please sign on to your account, select the appropriate category, and add their name to the attendee contact details page.  If you wish to add more than one attendee, click continue shopping to get a new page.
Refund Policy 
Participants wishing to cancel their registration must notify the CMS ( in writing 72 hours before the meeting to receive a partial refund. Please note there is a 10% administrative cancellation fee.

CMS has changed their policy so you are now required to register for the meeting before you can submit an abstract. The online abstract submission system enables this feature through a cross-verification with the meeting registration database.
