Thank you Andrei for posting this timely and exciting information about the 2017 edition of the SPGFI. As always, Canadian girls are very grateful to you for negotiating the inclusion of representatives from all provinces and your tireless work as a national co-ordinator.

Gary: Yes, definitely, for the second year in a row the Chess 'n Math Association is proud to organize provincial SPFGI qualifiers for both Ontario and Quebec. Historically, the Ontario event is a couple of months later than the Montreal one. In 2016, Francis Rodrigues organized a very successful qualifier in Toronto - expertly directed by Mario Moran-Venegas - in May. Larry Bevand and Francis are currently holding discussions about the 2017 date for Ontario. An announcement will follow.
