These are Canada's Award-Winning Magicians & Grand Prix Champions

The FISM World Championship of Magic is like the Olympics for magicians. The top prize for magicians is the "Grand Prix," and it's not always awarded.


Have any Canadian magicians won the coveted prize? Let's take a look!



Canadian World Champions

Winning the FISM World Championship of Magic can be career-changing. However, it takes years to craft and polish an award-winning routine, and the world-acclaimed competition only happens every three years.


Magicians must first qualify and be represented by their country's FISM-recognized magicians association. For example, Canadians are represented by the Canadian Association of Magicians or the Quebec Magic Club.


The Grand Prix title is given in stage magic and close-up-- but it's not always awarded.


Have many Canadians won the top prize? It's complicated.


Before the Canadian Association of Magicians was founded in 1997, competing Canadians could not earn the Championships' top prize. In fact, in 1994, many people felt Canadian magician Greg Frewin was cheated the Grand Prix because Canada had no official unifying magician association.


It was the spark Joan Caesar needed to start the Canadian Association of Magicians.
