Canadian Academic Quiz League - Upcoming Events
Here is a list of academic quiz tournaments taking place in Canada
in the next year. These tournaments are not necessarily affiliated
with CAQL. Events outside our home and native land
may also be listed here if the subject
matter is to include substantial Canadian content, or if discounts
are offered to Canadian teams.
Please e-mail announcements, updates and corrections to
caql -at- caql -dot- org.
Include tournament web page URL, contact e-mail address or phone number
to be posted here,
date, location, who is eligible to play, cost, discounts
(for buzzers, clocks, staff, long-distance travel, etc.),
source of questions, subject matter (academic, pop culture, etc.),
expected difficulty level,
approximate amount of Canadian content, and deadlines (for registration
and/or for submission of questions, if required).
Although we endeavour to keep this page correct and up to date,
we cannot guarantee the accuracy of all the information posted here.
If you are interested in a particular event, check with the event's contact
person and/or web page (if any) to verify the details.
We also monitor the

In an attempt to make the job of spambots slightly more difficult,
e-mail addresses are written with "-at-" and "-dot-" instead of
"@" and ".", respectively.
