  • We were fortunate in being able to recruit teachers, professors, and speakers in sharing their expertise with us on April 1st, 2017.  However, there was insufficient number of registrants that responded to Jill by this time.  Out of respect of your time, we have decided to cancel the mini-conference this year.

    Please look forward to other events that we are organizing in the future.  For example, did you know that we have an annual social with exciting keynotes every September?  Past presenters have included Marian Small, Chris Suurtamm, Kyle Pearce and more!  Don't forget that OAME's Annual conference will be coming to Ottawa in 2019 as well!.

    Thank you for your continued support for our math community.  Our apologies for any inconveniences if you have already made arrangements to attend the event.

    Best regards, COMA Council

  • Our 2017 COMA Fall Social at the Centurion Centre will take place Thursday Sept 28th from 4:15-7pm.  Stay tuned for more details!!!
