What is a
Certified Management Consultant?

The CMC Designation

In a profession with few objective benchmarks there is only one unquestioned credential: the CMC designation. Those few who earn the right to call themselves Certified Management Consultants have attained what others aspire to – a higher level of management consulting.

As a CMC and as a member of CMC-Canada, you can increase your value as a professional, expand your network, and showcase your expertise to your clients and prospects.


Global Recognition

As the world’s only internationally recognized credential for management consultants, a CMC Designation means more opportunities, a higher level of credibility and even better service for your clients.

Greater Knowledge

We host a range of exclusive in-person and virtual events, professional development programs and webinars, to ensure CMCs are on the cutting edge of industry knowledge.

Added Professionalism

The CMC designation signifies peer accreditation, and is recognized nationally and internationally. And, your initiative in continuing to develop your professional skills and willingness to adhere to a rigorous Uniform Code of Professional Conduct demonstrate a commitment to the profession.

More Connections

Extend your capabilities and reach by building associate relationships and business partnerships. As a CMC, you have access to a network of qualified peers to test ideas and share approaches. You can further these relationships to better the profession by mentoring others, and growing professionally through insights from consultants who have ‘been there and done that’.

Extra Savings

CMCs can take advantage of our exciting Affinity Programs designed to enhance your membership experience. Enjoy discounts, benefits, and special offers from our partners in various industries.
