The Canadian Association of Management Consultants (CMC-Canada) fosters excellence and integrity in the management consulting profession. CMC-Canada administers, and its provincial Institutes confer, the Certified Management Consultant (CMC) designation in Canada. The Association and its 2500+ members advocate for the CMC designation and are dedicated to advancing the profession and delivering the benefits of these efforts to the client community.
CMC-Canada is a founding member of the International Council of Management Consulting Institutes (ICMCI), now CMC-Global.
Our Mission is to lead and serve the profession of management consulting in partnership with CMC Certifying Institutes across Canada. Our Vision is of a thriving and diverse profession that contributes to Canada's prosperity, with CMC recognized as the pinnacle of management consulting practice.
In 1963, after many years of committee work by the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Quebec, and meetings between senior representatives of the largest accounting firms and major consulting practices, it was agreed that there was much to gain by working together to build and standardize the emerging profession of management consulting.
From those initial meetings in Montreal, Ottawa, and Toronto, the movement to professionalize management consulting began.
