In-Residence Week for SCMP Designation Candidates image

Approximately 200 SCMP Designation Candidates™ from across Canada will attend the 2018 In-Residence Week (IRW), being held on Monday, May 14 to Friday, May 18, 2018, in Mississauga, Ontario at the University of Toronto, Mississauga Campus (UTM).

IRW is an intensive week that allows SCMP candidates to synthesize, apply, and test their knowledge and skills gained throughout the SCMP Designation Program™, and help prepare them for the final exam. It is the capstone to the program, with participants examining issues at the highest strategic level in supply chain management.

In-Residence Week presents a varied schedule that includes: case studies, group work, informative lectures, intensive Final Examination preparation.

It is each person’s responsibility to ensure they have completed or will complete all the necessary requirements, by the end of April 2018, to participate in In-Residence Week 2018 before registering for the event. This includes all 8 modules and 6 workshops.

There is no translated material for IRW, as la Semaine Intensive takes place in Quebec and held in French.


Individuals who are registered in the SCMP Designation Program™, have successfully completed all academic and experiential requirements and for whom the In-Residence Week is the last step prior to writing the Final Examination.

Candidates who register for IRW and are not eligible will be refunded their registration fee, less a $250 + GST administration fee. Please contact your local institute to confirm you are eligible to participate in IRW before completing registration.

Case Competition

Candidates will be asked to present, in a pre-assigned team, their response to a case study provided at In-Residence Week. Teams will be assigned at the beginning of the week. Presentations will be judged by an expert panel, who will assign a team mark.
