About CIM Chartered Managers Canada

Founded in 1942, the Canadian Institute of Management is a professional association, certification body and academic institute for managers and leaders. As a Federally Chartered not-for-profit organization, the Institute operates through 14 chapters across Canada and has provided management development and certification to over 80,000 managers since its founding.

The Institute offers two well-recognized professional designations and two academic programs.

Professional Designations

The Certified in Management (C.I.M.) designation is attained by completing our 8-course Chartered Management Program (CMP) or equivalent, supplemented with 24 months of professional-level management experience or completion of the Management Aptitude Evaluation (MAE).

The Chartered Manager (C.Mgr.) designation is for those with an undergraduate degree in management, supplemented with 48 months of professional-level management experience and a Management Aptitude Evaluation (MAE).  For holders of non-management degrees, C.Mgr. can be obtained by completing the 8-course Chartered Management Program (CMP) or a graduate degree in management.

Holders of these prestigious designations support the ongoing development of the management profession by subscribing Continuing Professional Development (CPD) and abiding by the Institute Code of Ethics.

Academic Programs

The Supervisory Management Program (CSM) is a 4-course introductory academic program that provides the opportunity to move into the management field.  These courses can be applied to the CMP.

The Chartered Management Program (CMP) is a rigorous 8-course academic program that provides the foundation to earn your C.I.M. or C.Mgr. designation and offers the flexibility to complete the process while developing your management and leadership skills.
