The OSMMC originated in the Geography Department at Trent University in 1969.  Professor Al Brunger was the Director of the competition from 1969 to 2009.  On his retirement, responsibility for the competition was taken by a group of Guelph Geographers.  That group, under the direction of David T. K. Dagg, conducted the competition until a new home was found at Laurier in 2011.

In 2011-2012, the OSMCC was relocated in the Department of Geography and Environmental Studies at Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo, Ontario.  Thank you for your patience during this transition.
