Depending on the date of registration, some venues may not yet be determined. This information will be sent to you in a reminder email 2 weeks prior to the seminar start date.

In the event that you need to cancel your registration, please refer to our cancellation policy below.
When is the last day that I can register for a seminar?
You may call to register up to the day before a seminar, however, it is preferable that you give us enough notice to ensure that materials are available for you. Please do not go to a meeting without first checking on availability.
When do I pay for my seminar?
Once your registration is confirmed, you will be issued an invoice. This invoice must be paid prior to the seminar start date. Payments are accepted in person or via phone, mail or fax. (For registrations from outside of North America, we do require the funds be sent via wire payment only).
What if I paid with a Purchase order and I need a receipt or a refund?
A Purchase Order is a promise of payment, so it does not mean that payment has been received. If possible, have your confirmation number ready. The confirmation number is located on your invoice/meeting notice. If your payment has been received, we will issue a receipt or refund to you as appropriate. To check on the status of your payment, please call us at 1-877-262-2519.
What is your Harmonized Sales Tax (HST) and Goods and Services Tax (GST) number?
Our HST/GST number is R102455250.

Canadian Management Centre is also known as IMACAN Management Centre.
Do you accept credit card payments? What credit cards do you accept?
We do accept most major cards (Visa, Mastercard and American Express) for payment for products or services.
What if I register for a seminar and then find out that I cannot attend?
If you cannot attend a seminar for which you have paid and are confirmed and cannot find a substitute to take your place, notify us by email or fax no later than 15 business days prior to your session's start date to transfer or for a complete refund.
If you cancel with 15 business days or less before the start date of that course, and cannot find a replacement for yourself, you will be liable for the entire seminar fee. Once your payment has been received and a cancellation administration fee of $250 has been paid, you will receive one courtesy transfer to use in any future Canadian Management Centre seminar* of equal or lesser value. The complimentary transfer must be used within one year of the original cancelled session. We will also work with you if the courtesy transfer needs to be substituted within your organization.
For cancellations received 5 business days or less in advance of the session start date or if you fail to attend without notifying us in writing, in fairness to all attendees, neither a refund nor a courtesy transfer will be issued.
*Annual Pass holders please note that registering for a course and not attending without notifying Canadian Management Centre will result in the cancellation of your Annual Pass and no refund will be issued.
To cancel, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or fax 416.214.1453
*Excludes Conferences, Special Events and Services.
What happens if I book my transportation and/or accommodation and then my course is cancelled or postponed?

Giving Back to the Environment through Partners in Growth™
Over the course of Canadian Management Centre’s day-to-day operations we rely heavily on printed materials to successfully service the needs of our clients. From marketing collateral through to the thousands of notebooks and learning materials we produce yearly, we end up using a very large volume of paper.
Because of this high volume paper use and its effect on our environment, Canadian Management Centre is proud to have partnered with St. Joseph Communications. As a client of St. Josephs, Canadian Management Centre is a participant in the Partners in Growth™ program, which to date has planted over 2,000,000 trees across Canada
Launched in 1990 in partnership with Scouts Canada, this one-of-a kind program replenishes the natural resources we depend on, primarily on public parkland and riverbanks (never to be harvested) across Canada.
Can I get your seminars delivered on-site?
Canadian Management Centre’s On-Site Seminars enable organizations to get the best we have to offer on-premises. Choose from more than 100 presentations. Or, we can create a workshop tailored to your company’s needs. For complete information, call 416-847-6052 or email us
