The Path to P.Mgr. for CGAs
Recognizing that many CGAs are involved in management, the Canadian Institute of Management has assessed the formation process, both academic and professional, taking into consideration former and current requirements, and has developed the following professional development pathway for CGAs to obtain a designation from the CIM:
A Certified General Accountant (CGA) in good standing, registered with one of the Provincial CGA Associations, holding 5 years of managerial experience, is qualified to apply for the designation of Professional Manager (P.Mgr.).
All applicants for a P.Mgr. designation will need to complete and qualify in accordance with the standard application process as outlined on the CIM website with the exception of transcripts being sent from their academic institution. Proof of academic qualification can be achieved by a sending copy of a current CGA registration card to the CIM National Office, which will be verified by the CIM with the respective Provincial CGA Association.
