About PMI Manitoba

The Project Management Institute (PMI) is the leading professional association for project management, and the authority for a growing global community of millions of project professionals and individuals who use project management skills. Collectively, these professionals and “changemakers” consistently create better outcomes for businesses, community and society worldwide.

PMI empowers people to make ideas a reality. Through global advocacy, networking, collaboration, research, and education, PMI prepares organizations and individuals at every stage of their career journey to work smarter so they can drive success in a world of change.

PMI is a not-for-profit, for-purpose organization working in nearly every country around the world to advance careers, strengthen organizational success, and enable project professionals and changemakers with new skills and ways of working to maximize their impact. PMI offerings include globally recognized standards, certifications, online courses, thought leadership, tools, digital publications, and communities.

Since its founding in 1969, the Project Management Institute (PMI) has grown to be the organization of choice for the project management professional. With over 600,000 members worldwide and over 1 million Project Management Professionals (PMP®), PMI is the largest and leading non-profit professional association in the area of Project Management. 

In 1994, a group of dedicated project management professionals founded the Project Management Institute Manitoba Chapter Inc. (PMI Manitoba), a local component of the global Project Management Institute.
