Chess'n Math Association

The Chess and Math Association (CMA) is a non-profit organization which, with our provincial coordinators, aims to promote chess in schools in Canada. The organization was founded in 1985 and now has three offices, 20 full-time staff and more than 100 qualified instructors. We teach chess as an extra-curricular activity to over 10,000 young people each week through our program. We provide a range of services to students and schools throughout the country.

Our Mission

Our mission is to introduce children of all ages to the game of chess. This helps them to develop logical thinking, self-confidence and the ability to concentrate in a stimulating, structured and fun environment.
