About CIM

As a non-profit association, the Canadian Institute of Management is Canada’s senior management organization dedicated to professional development. It was chartered in 1942 by a group of managers to increase opportunities for professional development.

The pace of change is accelerating, and with change comes the challenge to adapt and improve. For over 65 years the Canadian Institute of Management has advanced careers and contributed to the field of management knowledge amidst changing times.

As a member or a program participant, CIM informs and trains management professionals to be better prepared for the challenge of change.
