Chartered Institute of Marketing Management of Ontario

About us

Unleash and elevate your marketing potential with us

The Chartered Institute of Marketing Management of Ontario is the only chartered professional marketing body in Ontario. It was created by the Proclamation Pr 13 enacted by her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, with the advice and consent of the Legislative Assembly of the Province of Ontario on the 24th of May of 1988. Since then CIMMO has evolved to reflect the rapidly changing needs of the marketing industry.

At CIMMO, we believe ethics, integrity and honesty yield to responsible marketing – and make the world a better place. Our work is based on these key principles, and we steadfastly exercise them so we can continue to elevate our profession’s role in society. We welcome you to join us.
