About CIM | Chartered Managers Canada's British Columbia & Yukon Chapter

Chapter Overview

The British Columbia and Yukon Chapter covers a very large geographical area spanning the entirety of the province and territory. As CIM | Chartered Managers Canada’s most recently established Chapter, we bring a fresh and innovative perspective to the association. Our economy on the west coast presents unique opportunities and challenges for managers to navigate. Our Chapter is focused on training and supporting our members so they are prepared for success in their management roles.

British Columbia & Yukon Chapter Education Partnerships

CIM | Chartered Managers Canada values education that empowers students to develop their skills and grow into confident and competent managers and business leaders. The British Columbia and Yukon Chapter has specifically partnered with a number of post-secondary institutions in British Columbia to ensure that they offer programs that meet the requirements of the Chartered Manager Program (CMP) so students can become eligible for our management designations upon completing their program. If you are looking at post-secondary programs in British Columbia to advance your career in management, consider these programs to help you obtain our C.I.M. and C.Mgr. designations.

Art of Leadership Conference

On December 2, 2019, members of the British Columbia and Yukon Chapter attended The Art of Leadership conference in Vancouver which was organized by one of our fantastic partners. This one-day conference featured five speakers who are thought leaders, business icons and bestselling business authors. The subject matter brought forward enlightening insights for our members which they were able to take back to their organizations to apply and improve their management capabilities. Through CIM | Chartered Managers Canada’s partnership with The Art of Leadership, members who attended were able to take advantage of fantastic savings in order to attend.

The British Columbia and Yukon Chapter holds an annual event to show appreciation to members and representatives of the educational institutions that our Chapter has partnered with.

This event featured member presentations, and a keynote presentation entitled “Managing through Leadership; A Senior Executive’s Perspective”, and included a light lunch and networking session. The event was not held in 2020 or 2021 due to pandemic restrictions, however we are excited to run these events again in the future when we are able.
