The Canadian Memory Championships is dedicated to promoting Memory Sports here in Canada and around the world. I started the Canadian Memory Championships in April of 2012 because I felt that Canada needed it’s own Memory Champion.
Artofmemory.com allowed me to create an email group on their web site which I named Memorize Toronto and which I found very useful to get in touch with others who share my interest in memory. In honor of that email group, I decided to organize the first CMC using that group’s name, Memorize Toronto.
The initial 2012 CMC was a great success. This came as no surprise. Memory Sports have started in 1991 in Europe and have continued ever since. The US Memory Championships are now in their second decade of existence.
The 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016 CMCs brought an ever increasing number of competitors and media attention. For 2017, we will be innovating by attempting the first ever simultaneous competition in Edmonton and Montreal to accommodate more contestants.
If you are interested in the development of the Canadian Memory Championships, then I invite you to join the Board for this event. Please contact me for more details.
