Cette année, nous planifions un Championnat de la mémoire Canadien qui se produira à deux locations simultanément: Edmonton et Montréal. Quatre disciplines de mémoire seront offertes: numéros éclair, cartes éclair, 15 minutes mots aléatoires et 5 minutes noms et faces (noir et blanc). Nous allons obtenir nos premiers champions de l’est et de l’ouest et le ou la plus fort(e) obtiendra le titre de Champion de mémoire canadien 2017!

The 2017 Ontario Memory Championship

Toronto– June 25/2017  Metro Hall- Congratulations to Eric Yucong Li for winning the event and the title of 2017 Ontario Memory Champion. With the favorites unable to make it to the competition, Eric showed that perseverance does pay off.  His time of 2 minutes 19 seconds is more than twice as fast as his former best competitive score achieved in the 2015 CMC.  His victory was not as easy as the scores may suggest, with Jeremy managing a faster time on the first attempt but he was unable to reconstruct the deck perfectly. Howsikan Kugathasan finished in second place with 24 cards at each of his attempts after starting training with memory techniques less than 2 months ago!  Congratulations to all participants.




2017  Ontario Kid’s Section

Mississauga- Six kids competed  on Thursday June 8 for the title of 2017 Ontario Kid Memory Champion at Tomken Road Middle School, 3200 Tomken Rd, (Library).

According to Jeremy Valenciuk, the awesome teacher who made this competition possible, all went really well. The students had worked really hard all year and were extremely enthusiastic for the event.

Ryan Shrestha successfully memorized 15 cards at his second attempt to win the title and set the new memory record for the Kid’s Section in Ontario.  Congratulations to all the students for their courage in participating in this demanding challenge!

Also a big thank to the many volunteers: Nicole D’Alessandro, John Lam, Katherine Arbuthnot and especially Jeremy Valenciuk who made this event possible.

    Hello ! I wanted to know if the championship is an open event ? I would like to film and interview people in for a documentary project.

    Thank you.

    Yes, spectators are welcome and you can bring a camera with you. You are free to talk to contestants but they are also free not to talk to you; typically, memory athletes prefer to be left alone in the minutes prior to the competition to save their mental energies.

    Hi Selim, the 2017 Canadian Memory Championships does not have a definite date or location set yet and the registration is not open yet. I will notify you once we open the registration.

  5. Simon Luisi

    For the provincial competitions, there is a registration form in the resource tab. Once completed, you just email it to contact@canadianmemorychampionships.ca
    Never mind the registration deadline: The situation is unusual right now in Ontario because we have a central location for this event and there will not be any individual events. In light of this, we’ve decided to allow late competitor registrations for the Metro Hall competition only.
