The annual Canadian Youth Chess Championship (CYCC) is the most prestigious youth chess competition in Canada organized under the auspices of the Chess Federation of Canada (CFC). It is also a pathway to all international youth chess competitions that determines official representatives for the World Youth Chess Championship (WYCC), the Pan American Youth Chess Championship and the North American Youth Chess Championship. In 2020, the CYCC will be held in Mississauga, Ontario, which gives an excellent opportunity to young players from the Greater Toronto Area to take part. To earn the right to play in the CYCC, one has to quality in his or her province of residence. To qualify for the CYCC, 50% score is required, as per the national rules.
