Why Join CIM?

The Canadian Institute of Management is Canada’s senior not-for-profit management organization established and dedicated to the development and promotion of managerial excellence at all organizational levels.

Being a holder of a C.I.M. designation can provide you with the satisfaction that you are among that elite group of people who have an overall knowledge of what it takes to be a manager in the business world of today. It also demonstrates to either your prospective or present employer that you have achieved your certification as one of the highest standards in academic knowledge.

When you become a member of the Canadian Institute of Management, you join a national network of practicing managers. In an effort to keep up to date with business trends and the current environment, we encourage our members to attend periodic seminars, workshops, dinner meetings, and read our nationally distributed publication “The Canadian Manager”.

Through a diversified offering of designation programs, CIM informs and trains management professionals and those working to be management professionals to be better prepared for the current and emerging world of management. Being a CIM member also provides fellowship, social and professional networking opportunities.

Employers do look for evidence that the candidate has indeed pursued additional areas of professional development. CIM offers an opportunity for fellow graduates of the program to serve as a great resource, networking with potential and future employers and the opportunity to be an active participant in an organization that specifically supports business management.Member Be
