Professionals who earned the CPSM® while living in the U.S. or in countries other than Canada, or those who earned the MCIPS designation while living in the UK, may apply for and receive the SCMP. Please note that individuals who earn either the CPSM® or the MCIPS while living in Canada are not eligible for reciprocity.
There are two ways to obtain the SCMP:
For CPSM®, we will consult the CPSM® registry on the ISM web site so please ensure your registry status is up to date.
For MCIPS, we will verify directly with the CIPS office.
International membership is $400 Cdn. Fees must be paid either with credit card or bank draft in Canadian dollars.
You would receive all the benefits of membership available to SCMA’s Canadian members, with the exception of ready access to local events.
Within six weeks, you should receive your SCMP certificate in the mail, as well as a welcome package.
Once granted the SCMP, the holder must meet SCMA requirements for maintenance of the designation. This includes paying annual membership fees and earning a prescribed number of continuing professional development credits over three years. A revised SCMA program for continuing professional development is currently being finalized.
At the point that you relocate to Canada, your membership will be transferred to the appropriate SCMA Provincial or Territorial Institute, where you must fulfill the requirements of the Institute for SCMP maintenance.
No. Only ISM’s CPSM® designation and the MCIPS from CIPS are eligible for reciprocity with the SCMP.
